Check out our “best sellers” from 2016!


Every year we like to share our “best sellers” list from the year before– the top ten most checked out books in the city of Richmond from 2016. Last year’s numbers were interesting for a variety of reasons, especially for the fact that two locations were closed for half the year.

If we look at check-outs at all the branches together, our top ten looks like this:

  1. The girl on the train : a novel / Paula Hawkins
  2. All the light we cannot see / Anthony Doerr
  3. The nightingale / Kristin Hannah
  4. No more Mr. Nice Guy : a family business novel / Carl Weber
  5. The nest / Cynthia D’Aprix
  6. The life-changing magic of tidying up / Marie Kondo
  7. Carl Weber’s Kingpins. Cleveland / Brandi Johnson
  8. The last mile / David Baldacci
  9. Go set a watchman / Harper Lee
  10. Carl Weber’s Kingpins. Philadelphia / Brittani Williams

However, each of our branches serves a community with their own distinct reading preferences. Click a pin on the map below to see how your neighborhood read last year:
