CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCCU) -- The Champaign Public Library is earning national praise for the eleventh straight year.
The library has been recognized as an "All-Star Library" by the Library Journal and was ranked in the top 3.5 percent of libraries in the country.
The public library is one of only 69 libraries named an "All-Time All Star."
Libraries are graded by their lead in community engagement.
"We are always looking for new ways to bring people in - new ways to serve the community. We want to make sure that everybody in the community can find what they need at the library and get what they need here," Library Director Donna Pittman said.
"We are always looking at new e-resources, adding more e-books and other kinds of digital materials," Pittman added.
The Champaign Public Library was the only central Illinois school to receive this honor.
