The New York City library systems are home to millions of (print and digital) books, some more popular than others, and some titles more popular in certain boroughs.
At the end of every year, the Brooklyn, Queens, and New York Public Library systems (the latter covers Manhattan, Staten Island, and the Bronx) release their most checked-out books of the year, giving New Yorkers an idea of what their neighbors have been reading.
“It’s interesting that so many of the top titles were featured as part of book clubs — the WNYC book club and others — showing that New Yorkers are certainly craving a sense of togetherness through reading following a period of unprecedented isolation,” said Lynn Lobash, NYPL’s Assistant Director of Reader Services.
