The Columbus Metropolitan Library has been rated the best library system in the nation, nudging the Cuyahoga County Public Library from the top spot.
This is the third time the city’s library system has achieved the top ranking from Hennen’s American Public Library Rating. It also was No. 1 in 1999 and 2005 and has been in the top four every year since 1999, the first year the rankings were published in American Libraries magazine.
The Cleveland-area system is second. The Worthington, Upper Arlington and Grandview Heights libraries also were rated in the top 100.
