Well-done, Fussy fans — you almost certainly helped send local libraries to a lending record!
Rakuten OverDrive announced Tuesday that a record 65 public library systems each lent over 1 million digital books to readers in 2018.
Globally, libraries recorded over 274 million digital checkouts (including ebooks and audiobooks) last year, which is a 22 percent increase over 2017.
