On October 9th, I wrote the post It's Time! We Are Moving Our Fiction Into The Genre Neighborhoods! This is the second big change we have seen within our elementary library at Van Meter this year. Earlier in the year, we "Ditched The Dewey" and reorganized our nonfiction into categories.
Diana, my library associate, and I brainstormed the genre categories the fiction would be moved to and away she went on relabeling, updating the MARC records, and putting them in the new neighborhoods on the shelf.
Today as I look around the library, I love being able to see the new genre neighborhoods OPEN and ready for our students, teachers, and school community to come and visit.
I can't wait to see what this change will create as they browse, check out and read books within the genres they love and new ones they haven't ventured into before.
