Recently, the Philmont Public Library was ranked as a 4-star library by the Library Journal. The Journal chose 34 libraries in New York State to rank as 3, 4, or 5 stars based on their circulation, visits, attendance at programs and use of public computers.
While the staff was pleasantly surprised, several patrons wondered why the library didn't receive a 5-star rating.
The Library Journal rated over 7,000 libraries nationally, bestowing 34 New York State libraries with the ranking of 3, 4, or 5 stars. In the Mid-Hudson Library System, four libraries were selected as 3- or 4-star libraries. Tivoli Free Library was also honored with the 4-star ranking while libraries in Cold Spring and Milton were given a 3-star rating.
Stop in at the Philmont Public Library to see what all the fuss is about. The library is open Monday and Wednesday from 12 to 5 and 6 to 8. Thursday from 10 to 2, Friday from 12 to 5 and Saturday from 10 to 2.
