Top Ten of Everything Library!

It's January, so it's time for the Top Ten of everything library. Read on to learn what were the Top 10 highest circulating titles in fiction and non-fiction categories, audiobooks, DVDs, and even the Top 10 digital downloads from Hoopla.

COVID-19 Update: In line with the County's increased social distancing requirements, the library returned to Curbside service only on December 15, 'for the forseeable future.' Library buildings will be staffed from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm Mondays through Fridays, so please continue to call or place holds online and staff will have them ready for pickup when you call on arrival. We are also offering a 'reverse curbside' fax service -- call to schedule and price your fax and we can still send them for you ($2 for up to 10 pages, $4 for more than 10 pages).  We have book lockers installed at the Mt. Hermon branch and are adding them to the Brosville, Chatham and Gretna branches for materials pickups even when the library is closed. Our book drops remain open for returns (and you can return materials to any library building).
