The Westhampton Free Library is pleased to announce that it is once again one of several Suffolk County libraries to be awarded an American Star designation from the Library Journal, one of the oldest and most respected publications covering the library field.
This is the 11th year that the Westhampton Free Library has received this prestigious distinction.
The Library Journal’s star ratings are based on a library’s annual patron visits, circulation, program attendance and public internet computer use. The data is compiled annually by public libraries, reported to their states’ library agencies, and compiled nationally by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
“Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the library has worked very hard to ensure that we still provided the community with stellar programming and services that are both helpful and educational,” said Westhampton Free Library Director Danielle Waskiewicz. “This award demonstrates that out-of-the-box thinking and determination allowed us to continue to offer the community much-needed services within the constraints of COVID guidelines.”
