Staff Picks and Best Seller Lists


You’ve already seen our Best OF 2022 list, so here’s our MOST BORROWED OF 2022 –  the ones that have been checked out of our library the most over the year. This list is always interesting because it’s never what you think it will be. They’re not necessarily the newest, or the trendiest, most talked-about books. They’re the ones I think of as having some quiet, reliable goodness to them. The ones where you just can’t go wrong by reading them!  Matt Haig’s Comfort Book topped the non-fiction charts at 22 checkouts and our fiction winner, Greenwood, circulated a whopping 49 times last year alone! Check out (pun intended) the top circs in non-fiction and fiction for  2022! 🙂




The Best OF 2022 List is here!

We’ve declared Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister The Staff Pick of 2022. It was a tight race, but Wrong Place Wrong Time was the top contender for 3 staff members so it won our coveted Top Pick of the year. You can find the complete list of Best of 2022s here.

Happy reading!
