Most Checked Out Books in 2016 - so far

We ran a report to find out which titles circulated the most this year. This report includes all books in the Children's collection and the Adult collection. Many of these titles are summer reading assignments from the local schools. This explains the massive popularity of The A.B.C Murders by Agatha Christie, a terrific mystery which went out 63 times this year, just topping The Girl on the Train because so many local students checked out our multiple copies of Christie's whodunit last summer.
