Survey: Lebanon, Zionsville libraries among best in state

Public libraries in Zionsville and Lebanon are ranked as the two best in Indiana in their spending category, the Library Journal reported in its annual LJ Index of Public Library Service.

Scores are based on circulation, visits, program attendance and public Internet use. Libraries must have yearly operating expenditures of at least $10,000, and serve a population of at least 1,000, to be included in the index. Scores were based on data collected in July 2009 by the Institute of Museums and Library Services.

The index allows a comparison of the nation’s 7,513 public libraries “based on what they deliver to their communities,” Library Journal said in a press release.
