Which picture books were checked out most often from the Community Library of DeWitt and Jamesville in 2017?
I report, rather happily (and surprisingly), that no TV or movie tie-ins made the top 17 in 2017! Though, had I expanded the list to top 25, we’d certainly see Peppa Pig (who was very popular in 2016). Had I expanded to top 30, we’d have seen Disney’s Frozen.
Not surprisingly, Pete the Cat makes an appearance, as does Mo Willem’s pigeon and Thomas the Tank Engine. The rest of the books on the list are a wonderful mix of titles and characters. The top book of 2017 stars a little elephant that you just might recognize.
Circulated 17 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 17 times means the top book was checked out over and over for nearly the entire year.
Circulated 16 Times:
Circulated 15 Times:
Circulated 14 Times:
How many of these titles have you read?

If every library made a list of top circulating picture books, every list would be different. How does your library compare?
