Library staff by nature are often interested in knowing what books are most popular in interlibrary loan, and not always just for work purposes. I love to read and, sometimes these lists can help me chose a great next book.
This year there are plenty of titles I could add to my growing reading list. I'm not sure if that is good or bad news. We compared VDX statistics to see if Minnesota public library patrons followed national ILL trends. The results were surprising. Just one title appeared on both lists this year. Take a look at the lists below, are there any surprises for you?
