About this Guide

Top 10 banner

As we say Goodbye! to 2019 and Hello! to 2020, the Highline College Library presents a list of the Top 10 Books that were checked out over the past year. How, you may be asking, does the library know this information? Your library tracks materials that are checked out so that we can improve our collections and services to the Highline College community. However, this does not mean we track individual's browsing or checkout history.* Additionally, based on the Top 10 list, we have recommended other titles that are by the same authors or cover the same subjects. We hope you all have a wonderful break and encourage you to checkout one of the books in this guide if you want to read over the holidays.


*Your First Amendment rights to read and consume the information you wish without government oversight is an essential freedom so we do not track who checks out what, just the titles and frequencies of checkouts.
