Top Circulating Titles Tool

Looking for ideas of books to recommend or purchase?  We can help.  Our friends in IT developed this truly fabulous tool you can use to get a list of the top 10, 25, 50 or 100 titles in your choice of material types at your choice of locations.  You can even download a spreadsheet of, say, your school’s top 10 to create a poster for your library.  It’s super simple to use!  Pictured above, you’ll see the first few of the top 25 Teen titles checked out since Jan. 1, 2023 at both IndyPL and Shared System locations.  You can click on the hyperlinked titles (so thoughtful – thank you, IT friends!) to see if you own a copy, and request a couple to tempt some readers if you don’t.
