What’s Your Favourite Read?

Last week Australian libraries celebrated Library and Information Week. As a part of the celebrations the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) surveyed public libraries to find out what readers loved to borrow most.  The results were interesting.  There was a good mixture of Australian and international titles being borrowed by library patrons.  The top-ten lists for the categories surveyed are available on ALIA’s webpage by clicking here.

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins was at the top of the young adult fiction list.
