The library is one of only 13 public libraries nationwide to have earned the five-star rating by the Library Journal every year over the last decade.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"This award is really about being in tune with our community and providing the services that they want, when they want them," Acting Executive Director Mike Driskell said in a news release. "Responsive change to align services with needs is key to receiving this award year after year. Our mission is to focus completely on the community to identify the services and programs that our residents need and do whatever we can to make them happen."

Arlington Heights was one of six libraries in the state to earn a five-star rating.
