Belated congratulations are in order for the Toronto Public Library, which became the first library in the world to lend over twenty million ebooks!

The TPL reported this month that it reached that milestone on July 31.

It’s a far cry from where the library’s digital collection began — with just twenty-five ebook titles in 2007.

Maria Cipriano, the library's senior collections specialist responsible for ebooks, shared the twenty most-circulated ebooks in the TPL’s history in the blog post announcing the record.

She issues a bit of caution about the list, though: “If a book costs less, it might circulate more, because we can buy more copies.”
