Star Library Celebration


Kent District Library was recently recognized as one of America’s Star Libraries, as rated by the Library Journal Index of Public Library Service, a national rating of public libraries. KDL was one of only two libraries in Michigan to receive this honor.

To thank you for helping make us a Star Library, we would like to invite you to stop into any KDL branch December 13-15 and pick up a small star-themed token of our appreciation.

Library Journal ranked 7,407 public libraries, and identified 258 star performers. Libraries were ranked and given scores based on their circulation, visits, program attendance and public internet terminal use. The top libraries in each category, organized by ranges of operating expenditures, are recognized as a Star Library.

We are thrilled that Kent District Library is included in the 2010 Library Journal America’s Star Library Index and appreciate the support that our patrons and communities have shown over the years. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating this wonderful achievment!

    This doesn’t have to do with the post, but I didn’t know how else to contact you. I’ve been trying for MONTHS to put Vanished and Pure Sin by Kate Brian on hold, but every time I try it says “No Items Requestable, Request Denied.” I really want to read these books but it’ll never let me put them on hold! Please help me!
