The Iowa City Public Library received state accreditation and is one of 349 public libraries to do so.

According to a Public Library news release, the accreditation requires a “significant, ongoing local commitment to high quality library services.”

Accredited libraries receive a higher rate of compensation through Iowa Library Services’ Enrich Iowa program, the release said.

“The director and board of trustees of the Iowa City Public Library and the City of Iowa City are to be commended for this achievement and their commitment to excellence in public library services for their community,” State Librarian Mary Wegner said.

The library’s recognition is valid through June 30, 2015.
