The Most Popular Items of 2018

We've run the numbers for 2018, and library staff has put together lists of the most popular fiction books, non-fiction books, and DVDs in the library's collection.

In the fiction category, readers love Minnesota authors like John Sandford and William Kent Krueger, who each have two titles in the top 25.

The non-fiction list is topped by this year's adult Read Brave title, Evicted.

Hollywood blockbusters and last year's Academy Award nominees circulated well in 2018, with Black Panther leading the way.
