Archambault – What are you reading?

La bande dessinée, or the graphic novel as we know it, was a large part of reading when I was young. So when we started selecting for Archambault’s shared French collection, I wanted to make sure that this genre was reflected in the collection.

At present, we have 1810 items in the collection, with 826 circulations, and many holds. The most popular title?
