This school year I have changed my book checkout system. In the past it has been a bit of a free for all. This year my library is runs under the same checkout system as our school library. All of my books are barcoaded, and I have a fancy little scanner that we use to check books in and out. I am finding that this shift has come with all sorts of awesome things: less lost books, less lost books, less lost books, and I can create these fancy little reports.
I have looked at the stats from the first quarter of the school year and have found that my students love graphic novels. Actually, I already knew that, but I was surprised to see that the top 14 titles are all graphic novels. Here are the top 5 (I did not have this system in place the first two weeks of school.)
