The Sherman Library’s Most Popular Books in 2020.

In a world where everything has changed, it seems, by reading books in a way, many people have faced the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, Sunny Purdin, adult services librarian at Sherman Public Library, said library staff and patrons had to make adjustments to keep everyone safe.

Purdin published the following list of the most viewed books of the year for the library. However, she warned, this list does not include books that have been digitally checked out through services like Libby.

Digital books have been very important during the pandemic. Those who wanted to be able to turn the pages of their books with their real fingers could access the library stacks in a number of ways.

“We had a curbside pickup,” she said, where people can check the book over the phone or on the internet, then just drive and someone will bring the books. Or, she says, people can walk into the library.

“We need masks,” she said and they prefer people to practice social distancing as much as possible. For now, the pandemic has ended programs like story time and other social interactions at the library. However, Purdin said staff were eager to restart those programs.
