In April, four of my libraries were in the Top 20. Now only two are. It's great to see more libraries increasing their collections.

Awesome!

It's amazing how e-book holdings have grown - 18 months ago, Indy had ~6,000 books and it only took 4500 books to break into the top 10.

Still, the library has 2.1 million items in its catalog, so there's still a long way to go; ignoring PD books and self-published books, it seems like libraries should have at least several hundred thousand e-books before dropping back to maintenance mode, where they are focusing on new books and not backlog.

(TN READS is the system that serves everyone not in a metro area, so places like Nashville, Knox County and a couple other major cities can only access their county library.)

Thanks much, you two. Added to list.

Keep 'em coming, people

For READS I'm seeing 23,231 titles when you do advanced search.

Thanks for updating. It was becoming too much for me to keep track with the various webpages. Most stopped the "all ebooks" link. Plus, the 3M and AXIS 360 selections.

Looks like these guys have added a bunch of new books in the past two days...

Hennepin County has 45,070 as of a few minutes ago.

Thanks; I knew they had a higher number, but never thought about checking for it with the advanced search feature.

Anytime. I only included OverDrive figures. I know there are other providers out there now, but didn't feel like really getting into it.

Mine is Ann Arbor, MI:

Fiction ebooks = 6,985
Nonfiction ebooks = 1,031
Audiobook fiction = 3,435
Audiobook nonfiction = 908

Total: 12,359

I don't know how to make it display all books without lumping them into one of those categories, so I'm assuming there's no overlap. But this doesn't take into account that some books are available as ebooks AND audiobooks, so that may bring the total number of distinct books way down.
