From these small beginnings the number of English and French books on the shelves has risen to well over 10,000 - books of all kinds, both non-fiction (travel, history, biography, the arts, etc.) and fiction, among which appear works of literature as well as the latest adventure, romance and mystery novels by today's most popular authors. Some 300 new books are now being added to the collection each year.
