The Star Libraries by Expenditure Category | LJ Index 2017

The LJ Index is based on five types of per capita use generated by public libraries: visits, circulation, ecirculation, public access computer use, and program attendance. Star Library ratings of five, four, and three stars are awarded to libraries that generate the highest combined per capita outputs among their spending peers.
The LJ Index is based on five types of per capita use generated by public libraries: visits, circulation, ecirculation, public access computer use, and program attendance. Star Library ratings of five, four, and three stars are awarded to libraries that generate the highest combined per capita outputs among their spending peers. For details about how the LJ Index is calculated and for whom, see the project’s FAQ. This year, there are 259 Star Libraries.

To see the scores of all libraries included, go to Find a Library.

Notes about the tables:

  • Data in these tables are sorted initially by number of stars and score.
  • All of the tables are resortable. For example, to sort within an expenditure range by circulation per capita, click the “Circ (per Capita)” cell in the head row of the table.
  • The first sort will be descending, another click will switch to ascending.
  • To sort by another criterion, select another cell in the head row of the table.
  • To sort the table by two criteria at the same time, first click the header column you’d like to be the initial sort factor. Then add a secondary sort by holding shift while selecting a another column.
  • You can also use the search box at the top right corner of the table to search for and filter text in the table.
