HelMet-libraries' most loaned adult books

Lists of the most borrowed adult books at the city libraries of Espoo, Helsinki, Kauniainen and Vantaa. The lists cover the 100 most borrowed adult books (fiction and non-fiction). The data is quarterly and starts at the beginning of 2014. The data also includes renewals of loans.

The names of the books in the material have been shortened because the names of the books can be really long, for example, in textbook series with several parts and different versions of the exercise books, textbooks and dictionaries. Therefore, several different books can be under the same name in the material. Only the first separating colon or comma is included.

NOTE: The Excel file 2019 - contains both the most borrowed adult and children's books.
