For the seventh year in a row, Medina County District Library ranks among the top five libraries of comparable size in the nation.

The annual Hennen’s American Public Library Ratings has been ranking libraries since 1999. Medina County District Library made the top five in 2000 and has remained there.

“Since being recognized as library of the year in 1998, we have been a leader among libraries. We hear thanks from patrons daily, but it’s great to be recognized nationally, and seven years in a row is exceptional,” says Carole Kowell, MCDL director.

The rating is based on 15 factors including circulation, staffing, materials, reference service and funding levels.
