These Were the Most Borrowed Books from Burlington Public Library in 2017


Bibliophiles make the best company, don’t we?

There’s always something interesting to discuss, debate, ponder.

It's no secret that Burlington Public Library is an incredible community resource.

The system's seven current locations offer a variety of services such as 3D printing, bookbinding, free e-learning services, programming for newcomers, knitting machines, workshops, book clubs, and so much more.

Of course, all seven branches do lend all kinds of books, from young adult fiction, to adult non-fiction, to juvenile fiction, and beyond!

And it seems like we’ve done a lot of reading - and watching, listening, and streaming - in 2017.

Some titles were more popular than others.

These were some of the most borrowed items across the system in 2017, according to Burlington Public Library.
