The Most Popular Books

Each year people ask our staff what were the most popular books among WPL customers. They really want to know what their fellow readers were borrowing. So, back by popular demand, our annual countdown of the Top 15 Most Borrowed Books at WPL.

Since mid December, each day two new titles (one fiction and one non-fiction) were posted on the website and WPL’s social media. Today we reveal THE most popular titles of the year according to our customers.

In at the #1 spot for fiction is All the Devils Are Here by Louise Penny and, for non-fiction, A Promised Land by Barack Obama!
