The Brooklyn Public Library unveils its most-circulated book of all time to celebrate 125 years

The Brooklyn Public Library announced that Maurice Sendaks Where the wild things are is his most borrowed book.

Where the wild things are is the story of a little boy and the main character of the story named Max. After his mother sends him to bed without supper, Max falls asleep and his room instantly turns into a moonlit forest surrounded by a vast ocean.

The Brooklyn Public Library, also known as the BPL, is the public library system of the New York borough of Brooklyn. It is the 16th largest public library system in the United States by inventory and seventh by attendance.

In recent weeks, the institution has shared its most borrowed books throughout its history to celebrate 125 years of service to the Brooklyn community in New York City.

After that, the second most popular book in the library Where the wild things areis The snowy dayby Ezra Jack Keats.

In 2020, Keats’ book was also revealed to be the New York Public Library’s most-loaned book on his own 125th birthday.

The BPL thanked all the authors on their book list in a tweet. The list includes Dr. Seuss, Emily Bronte, Harper Lee, Louisa May Alcott, and Eric Carle.

“To 125 years of Brooklyn stories. We look forward to the next chapter. Celebrate our past with us and look forward to the next 125 years with great anticipation.
