The Grand Marais Public Library staff found out this week the library has once again achieved a 5-star ranking in the annual Library Journal Star Libraries standings. Grand Marais has been ranked a 5-star library for 10 years running, one of only 13 libraries in the nation to do so.
 
The Library Journal star rankings are based upon user metrics such as the number of items that circulate, the number of people who visit the library and the number of uses of computers in the library, all relative to the base population of the community.
 
WTIP’s Julie Carlson spoke with Grand Marais Library Director Steve Harsin about the achievement.
