Popular Media

The Friends of the Library asked us to figure out which were the most heavily used media materials. It's a little hard to know how to look at it, as the series and multipart titles pile up the most circulations even though individually the sub-parts are not nearly as popular as some of the other titles. Whale Rider towers over all other titles in terms of its popularity, 102 circulations so far this year. We have separated them into two lists, as they are (sort of) apples and oranges. In some cases we have both audio and video versions, which make the numbers higher. Shown in order of popularity.
