Popular Reference Titles: Top 10 by Dewey Category

Jonas Herriot, Richmond Lending Library

Rather than go for a top ten by overall figures, this list was broken down into the large Dewey categories, and the top issuing non-fiction book in each was chosen. This represents the books which children across our borough over the last six months are borrowing, and while it may not have the recent success stories in this field, it is an accurate representation of what is popular among our younger readers.
