Year in Review: Our Most Popular Items

It seems like just about every streaming or entertainment service has a year in review or "wrapped" report now. It can be a lot of fun to look back on the year and see what our consumption habits were. What artists, shows, or songs we gravitated too can reveal a lot about how we felt about the year and help us identify patterns. Which is why we here at the library also do a sort of year-end review we like to call STATISTICS!

Don't let the math word scare you away, because today we're simply looking at circulation stats. Simply put, how many times did this book or movie checkout? Let's take a look at our most popular materials of the year by category!

Adult Fiction:

Remarkably bright creatures: a novel (2022) / Where the crawdads sing (2018)

Teen Fiction:

The Hunger Games (2008) / The ballad of songbirds and snakes (2020)

Youth Fiction:

Diary of a wimpy kid: the getaway (2017)

Adult Movies:

Pride and prejudice (BBC Mini-series 1995)

Youth Movies:

PAW patrol. Summer Rescues (2018)

It's interesting how some older books like The Hunger Games surge in popularity because of movie releases for their sequels and how persistent the appeal of Where the crawdads sing is. As you can see, there were ties this year for the top spot in both Teen Fiction and Adult Fiction. And in the top spot for Youth Fiction, Diary of a wimpy kid: the getaway was borrowed a whopping 52 times!
