Most Popular OverDrive Titles in December 2020

You're reading digitally more than ever before. To make it easier to find titles to read, we've added new collections to OverDrive.

When a book is always available to download instantly we call that license Simultaneous Use (SU). An example of a SU title on the top checkout lists is Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

In 2019 the King County Library System (KCLS) claimed the No. 2 digital circulating library in the U.S., opens a new window and No. 3 worldwide with 5.6 million checkouts. 

Our 2020 goal was 6.5 million checkouts and by the end of December, we crushed that goal with 7.4 million checkouts! That's 400,000 more than our stretch goal of 7 million checkouts. 

These were the most checked out titles in December.
