Bernardsville is a 5 Star-Rated Library
Library Journal article for specifics about this rating and to see the very short list of libraries nationwide that earned five stars in our expenditure category, $400,000 to $999,999. These ratings are based on data gathered in 2008 after the recession had started. Bernardsville Public Library director, Karen Brodsky, is quoted in the article as noting that high usage levels were "partly because numerous people were using the library to find employment and to hone computer skills toward that effort." The library's electronic databases, Career Center, free computer classes, and the many programs dedicated to helping job seekers all contributed to attracting a large number of visitors. In addition, we are fortunate to have a loyal community of library users who make a visit to Bernardsville Library part of their daily routine.
