Man reading on bench.What did Aucklanders enjoy in the three months April to June 2017?

Once again, crime dominates the list of most-borrowed novels, and old favourite Jeffrey Archer makes an appearance in the top ten - while John Le Carré's memoirs pop up in the non-fiction list.

This quarter we’re also highlighting children’s picture books and DVDs. In picture books, Dr. Seuss reigns supreme, with Peppa Pig also being shown a lot of love.

Movie viewers put our own Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople in the top slot. Disney’s South Pacific adventure Moana was in second place, followed by adventures on a train, a plane and a spaceship.
