Do you have a link to your library's ebook/ audiobook collection?

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.
I'm showing 8980 ebooks and 5164 audiobooks in the Midwest Collaborative.

For those interested, the stats have been upgraded. Three libraries saw substantial gains, landing two of them onto this list: Pierce County WA (+21.5%) and Virginia Beach VA (+15.1%). The biggest gain was King County WA (+27.4%), which jumped five spots into the Top 10.

Let me know if other libraries should be on this list.

Chicago Library, total 8.999 ebooks (6222 fiction, 2777 nonfiction).

Edit: This is purely ebooks in any format, not any audiobooks.

Chicago is pretty pathetic for audiobooks, only 5,458 total (4091 fiction, 1367 nonfiction).

Thanks for the info. I did an advanced search and came up with 11,494 ebooks and 6,655 audiobooks. Not enough for the current cutoffs of 15,000 and 7,000. With libraries increasing their collections, I plan to raise the cutoffs to 20,000 and 10,000 to keep the lists manageable.

Thanks for the tip

Added it to both lists (ebooks & audiobooks).
