Political memoir, film tie-ins among most borrowed books in ACT libraries

Bob Carr’s Diary of a Foreign Minister (UNSW Press) was among the most borrowed books from ACT libraries in 2014, reports the Canberra Times.

Other popular titles at ACT libraries were The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Penguin), The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (Little, Brown), Divergent by Veronica Roth (HarperCollins) and The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak (Picador). Three of these titles have been adapted into films in recent years.

The Minister for Territory and Municipal Services Shane Rattenbury told the Canberra Times that about three million items are borrowed annually from ACT public libraries and that there had been around 1.9 million visitors across the ACT library network in the 2013-2014 financial year.
