Each year people ask our staff what were the most popular books among WPL customers. They really want to know what their fellow readers were borrowing. So, back by popular demand, our annual countdown of the Top 15 Most Borrowed Books at WPL. Each day two new titles (one fiction and one non-fiction) will be revealed here and on social media starting Thursday, December 17th.

As a bonus, at the end of the countdown we will be sharing the complete Top 100 lists for both fiction and non-fiction. See what your neighbours and fellow booklovers in our awesome community were reading during 2020. You might discover a new author or book (or two, or three...) that becomes a personal favourite.
