Library Receives Star Library Distinction

CRAFTSBURY- The Craftsbury Public Library has been recognized as a 2021 Star Library by Library Journal, a national publication. This national distinction compares usage and expenses of libraries across the United States and means that the library is used more than other libraries of comparable size throughout the United States. The Craftsbury Public Library is one of two libraries in the State of Vermont to receive the Star Library distinction.

This is the 13th year that the library has been recognized as a Star Library. The consistent high ratings stem from two factors: resident use of the library — from borrowing books and movies, attending story time and other programs, and using the library’s fast internet — and the fact that the library keeps costs down. Volunteers help in many ways at the library, from shelving to running programs, to repairing chairs, to creating fun fundraisers.The complete report can be read online at libraryjournal.com/page/americas-star-libraries-2021.
