LJ Index 2014: 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.

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 Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington DC, 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).

    Henrico County Public Library in Virginia may be considered a 5 star library by you guys, but it’s a negative10 stars library when it comes to its employees.
    It is one of the worst managed libraries in the entire United States. One Administrator for Henrico Public Library said she was trying to weed out all the complainers and whiners. Which is kind of funny because supposedly Virginia is a Right to Work state, meaning employees should be allowed to raise issues they have with managerial decisions. I would really like to know who calculates this score?

    How can Henrico Public Libraries be a 5 star when they are the only library system in the area that does not provide wireless printing. Hello the 21st century called and was wondering when were you going to catch up? Henrico County Public Library loves to jump on the band wagon for the latest new toys or gizmos, but when those things break down, they do not want to pay to fix them.

    I am excited we are once again a five star library! This is four in a row for us, and we’ve make the All Star list every year since it’s inception.
    Where can I find a list of how many libraries have “made the cut” every year, and how many libraries have earned five stars four times?
    I’d like to include this information in an article for our local paper.

    It would have been helpful to be able to click on the libraries and get to their websites. Can you consider this for next year?

  4. Our Library made it to 5 Stars, for our little town this is so exciting. Are budget is so small that we appreciate this so much! Thank you for including us. Oklahoma!
