Star Library Award The Vineyard Haven Public Library has once again been named one of 262 “star” libraries (out of 7,570 rated) in Library Journal’s annual rating of U.S. public libraries. The rating is based on four public service indicators — circulation, visits, program attendance and public Internet use — from 2010 data collected by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

There are nine “star” libraries in Massachusetts, also including the West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs libraries.
