New York City’s three public library systems released their annual lists for their most checked-out titles of 2022. At the New York Public Library, the most borrowed book of the year was Matt Haig’s The Midnight Library: A Novel. In Brooklyn, the top checkout was Laura Dave’s The Last Thing He Told Me: A Novel, and in Queens, The Paris Apartment: A Novel by Lucy Foley.

Each of the systems had a different top checkout, but The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid appeared on all three lists. Liane Moriarty’s Apples Never Fall, V.E. Schwab’s The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, and Emily Henry’s People We Meet on Vacation were also popular choices.

Brit Bennett’s The Vanishing Half, the top checkout from both the NYPL and Brooklyn Public Library in 2021, appeared on Brooklyn’s list once again.

“New Yorkers have character and it’s no surprise that this year’s top checkouts show they love good books with great characters,” Brian Bannon, NYPL’s Merryl and James Tisch Director of Branch Libraries and Education, said.

“The titles checked out at The New York Public Library this year are wonderful stories that invite readers to take a break from the hustle of everyday life and visit new places (and time periods) with interesting people doing fascinating things. We’re delighted to share these books with our patrons and welcome all New Yorkers to use their library card and choose their next adventure.”
