The Ann Arbor District Library has been named a five star library for the 10th year in a row in Library Journal’s annual rating of public libraries nationwide. The AADL is one of just 13 public libraries in the country to earn LJ's five star designation in each of the last 10 years.

Three other Michigan libraries received star ratings this year. Richland Community Library was named a Four Star library within its category, West Bloomfield Township Public Library received four stars, and Genesee District Library received three stars. Congratulations to our fellow Michigan libraries!

This is fantastic! I always knew you were #1 for me. :-)
Great to have it consistently validated.

Some of the images that come to mind when reflecting on 30+ years of spending time at the various libraries are the range and diversity of books, resources, and other materials, art and featured displays, programs, and knowledgeable and engaging staff. Well done Ann Arbor libraries. My home away from home. Thank you.

Not sure how I missed this accolade - 8 months ago! - but CONGRATS on being one of the BEST libraries in the nation. We're not biased - It is now an awarded fact!
