All the Stars, State by State

Star Libraries Map

Click a state above, or use the drop-down below to jump to the Star libraries in that state.

Star libraries are listed alphabetically by state abbreviation, then ranked by stars and score.  Please note that expenditure category peer comparisons are the critical ones; for the Star Libraries by expenditure category please go to The Star Libraries page and Star Data by Peer Group.

To sort the table,  select the desired column by clicking the cell in the head row of the table. To sort the table by two criteria, first click the header column you’d like to be the initial sort factor. Then add a secondary sort by holding shift while selecting another column.

You can also use the search box at the top right corner of the table to search for text in the table.

There are no libraries on this chart from Washington DC, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, or Wyoming (please see “Find a Library” to see how a library not starred did in the ratings or to discover why it was not included).

    This is very interesting; thank you for your hard work. I appreciate the ability to sort by different fields however the secondary sort on Expenditures is not particularly usable because it doesn’t sort in actual dollars rather a category name. Any chance I can get a sort by Stars/Expenditures? Thanks.

  2. Cathy Jones says:

    Thank you for posting all this great data online. Was there ever any consideration to adding a staff-with-MLIS rating per capita? How do you suggest public libraries’ staff be ranked, if all the reporting data you needed was made available to you?

  3. Alfredo Gonzales says:

    I wonder on how you do to find the Public Internet Terminal Use per Capita criteria. Is it monthly, weekly or other. And where can I find explained the general method, including how to calculate the score. Thanks
