It’s that time of year again. The time when news outlets remind us of all the stories that developed over the past year – political news, natural disasters, celebrities who passed away – you name it and they’ll probably recap it. It’s also a time when industries compile their “Best Of” lists – the best apps, the best toys, the best movies.

We were feeling a little left out of all of this list-making, so we decided to produce our own. So here they are: the most borrowed items at NOPL in 2017 from four different categories. Enjoy!

And by the way, if you’d like to borrow one of these items we’ve linked each one to our catalog to make it easy-peesy. You’re welcome!
