Falls Church City Library Receives Top National Honors


November 14, 2011
For the fourth year in a row, the Mary Riley Styles Public Library in the City of Falls Church has been named one of the best public libraries in the U.S. by the Library Journal.  The City library is one of only 262 top libraries out of 7,513 public libraries in the country to receive “star” ratings in a rating system similar to that used in the Michelin Guide.  The City library received four stars out of five (up from three stars the first two years of the award) and is one of only three libraries in the state to be chosen this year.

The public library national rating system rates libraries with expenditures of $10,000 or more that serve populations of at least 1,000.  Ratings are based on four per-capita service indicators:  library visits, circulation, program attendance, and public Internet computer uses.

    Colonel Mustard’s mother was a librarian so he understands how important libraries (and library ladies) are to the community. Congratulations to all!
