PUEBLO — Southern Colorado has one of the best libraries in the entire country.

The Library Journal gave the Pueblo City-County Library District a five-star review, its highest rating.

The system is based on seven categories including number of visitors, circulation of new books, and how often the public uses its computers.

The library said this is a real honor.

"It was really exciting because it showed all the hard work that we had done in that year to try and meet everyone's needs as best as we could. It really happened so we can provide the best public library service for our community," Nick Potter said.

The Pueblo District is one of just a handful of libraries across the country to receive this distinction.
