The analysis was conducted by the Montreal Gazette, the city’s English language daily newspapers.
The report includes three interactive visualizations.
From the Newspaper Article:
A Gazette analysis of the entire catalogue [downloadable, CSV] of Montreal’s 45 libraries showed that manga comics are by far the most loaned-out books in city libraries, followed by European comics like Les légendaires and Winx Club.
This shows that children make a significant portion of the city’s library-going public, which delights the director of Montreal’s library network.
“I’m happy to see that in general, Montreal’s libraries have made major gains in the youth segment. They’re the future of reading, an essential base for an educated city,” said Luc Jodoin [director of Bibliothèques Montréal].
