Library Journal has just released its 2013 Index of Public Library Service and Star Library ratings. This index is a rating system for public libraries nationwide, and libraries earn a star by being in the top 30 of their expenditure peer group (top 15 for the highest expenditure group) on an index score based on four per capita service output statistics: library visits, circulation, program attendance, and public Internet computer use.

Congratulations to the following Colorado libraries that were named star libraries this year:

  • Arapahoe Library District
  • Denver Public Library
  • Douglas County Libraries
  • La Veta Regional Library District
  • Limon Memorial Library
  • Mancos Public Library District
  • Ridgway Library District
  • Swink School/Public Library
  • San Miguel Library District #1/Telluride
