From a NYPL Blog Post:
Over 25 million items are circulated through our network of libraries each year, and among those items there are both expected front-runners and a few interesting surprises every year. For your perusal, we’ve compiled lists of the top books checked out systemwide and in The Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island in 2016. These lists include books borrowed from our 92 locations in the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island, as well as from our growing e-book catalog (which currently offers nearly 320,000 books).
Bestseller The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins took the top spot in 2016, followed by the award-winning Between the World and Me by Ta-nehisi Coates. You can also check out this interactive map to see which title was number one at each of our branches:
