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.
Muswellbrook Campus Librarian Mitch White with the top read – Lee Child’s “Never Go Back”
The most borrowed adult fiction book was Lee Child’s Never Go Back from the Jack Reacher series of novels. In other categories:
Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver topped the adult non-fiction list.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney led the children’s book list.
The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins was at the top of the young adult fiction list.
So check out the list – did your favourite feature here?
