The graphs show the number of books borrowed from four village libraries

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Write at least 150 Words.

Model Answer:

The line graph gives information about the manuals borrowed from libraries located in four different places between June and September 2014 and the pie chart depicts the repartition of these manuals by categories during the same period.

Overall, the most striking fact to emerge from the graphs is  that the number of books borrowed from all the mentioned libraries increased except for Ryeslip which showed the opposite trend. Moreover,   (incorrect reporting) fiction made up the largest group of books borrowed.

In detail, books borrowed from Ryeslip and Sutton Wood libraries stood at 300 and 250  (incorrect reporting) in June respectively. Following this, the number of books from Ryeslip witnessed a linear decrease finishing at approximately 180 books in September. At the same time, the figures for Sutton Wood fluctuated hitting the lowest point in August and then rising to  300 the following month. On the other hand, the number of books from West Eaton and Church Mont followed similar patterns. After starting at 50 books for both libraries in June, it increased gradually finishing at 150 in September.

Concerning the repartition of these manuals by categories, fiction was the most popular among the five types with more than four out of ten fiction books borrowed over this time. Biography accounted for the second largest group with just less than a fifth. Self-helping books were borrowed the least at just 10%.
