In my last post I counted down the top 40 music CDs for ALL TIME here at the library. These CDs had the highest circulation since we started counting with our current system way back in 1999. The list was interesting but also skewed towards music we have been owned for years as more time to circulate often leads to higher circulation numbers. I promised to do another list based just on circulation for 2012 and here it is!

13. 21 / Adele.

As an aside, the circulation statistics for the CD collection remain quite high. Happy listening, everyone!
