Most Checked Out Music, Games & Comics 2017

Over the last 2 days we’ve shown you the year’s most circulated books and movies, but there’s much more to our collection. And so we are happy to present the year’s most checked out music, video games, and graphic novels. The music chart is a somewhat unsurprising mix of pop, soundtracks, and adult alternative albums. Video games are largely comprised of the year’s most hyped titles, with the Nintendo Switch making a strong showing in its first year of release. Most interesting perhaps is the comics list which is flat-out dominated by DC, leaving room for only 2 appearances by Marvel titles, despite the latter’s far stronger performance in film. After each item you will find links to reserve them at the library or enjoy them online using your library card. Due to a lot of titles in each category being tied with each other, the lists all have unusual numbers of items in them.
