Top 19 Circulating Picture Books Of 2016

cropped-libraryrockers1.jpg

It is always interesting to discover which picture books have been checked out most frequently from the DeWitt Community Library. Not surprisingly, this year’s list is a mix of new and old favorites, and titles featuring characters from popular TV series and movies.

Peppa Pig dominated the list this year, appearing three times below, and if I had continued past 19, we would have seen Peppa many more times.

Disney titles were popular, as were a couple of Anna Dewdney’s LLama LLama books.

Curious George made the list too, along with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Star Wars.

New favorites include One Big Family (which tied with Cinderella for most circulated), Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast, Race Car Count, Ninja Baby, and others.

If every library made a list of top circulating picture books, every list would be different. But here’s what circulated the most at my public library in 2016:

Circulated 15 Times: This may seem like a small number, but when you consider that each book may be checked out for up to 3 weeks (21 days), that 15 times means the top books were checked out over and over for nearly the entire year.

  1. Glad to see One Big Family on the list. Marc Harshman is the Poet Laureate of West Virginia. I’ve met him many times, he’s a really nice man. I think its neat that a state’s Poet Laureate is also a picture book writer.
