Heart of community

To the Editor:

I want to congratulate the Southwest Harbor Public Library for its fourth consecutive year as a top rated library.

“Library Journal” awarded the library its highest honor, the “5-Star Library” designation. Only about 1 percent of the nation’s public libraries receive this 5-Star recognition.

A number of criteria go into the selection process, including circulation of materials, visits to the library, program attendance and use of the public Internet facilities. In existence for more than a century, “Library Journal” is the leading publication focusing on libraries and reports on technology, management, policy and other professional concerns of the library community.

The patrons, volunteers, donors, trustees and staff of the Southwest Harbor Public Library can be very proud of this recognition. Without their support and enthusiasm, the library would be a much quieter place.

Come and see the energy at the heart of our community.

Charles V. Stanhope
