This year we'll be working with our Google Apps even more. I look forward to working with you on research skills, finding new books, and learning from you about favorite books. I hope to have students help me preview and review new books. There is no better referral for a book than from another student. Come into the library media center to say hello! I'd love to talk books. -- Mrs. Maguire, Slauson Library Media Specialist
In our library, books are arranged by the Dewey Decimal system. Fiction books begin with FIC and are followed by the first three letters of the author's name. For example, Walk Two Moons, by Sharon Creech would have the spine label, "FIC CRE." Fiction books are arranged along the outside wall of the media center.
Non-fiction books (information books) have call numbers. Each set of call numbers correspond to a topic area. For example dictionaries will be in the 500s, graphic novels in 741, and Biography in 921. Sometimes the numbers get more specific and will follow the first three digits with subsequent numbers. For example, a french dictionary would be 512.20. The call number is then followed by the first three letters of the authors last name.
NEW BOOKS, Series books, and Magazines, and Graphic Novels will all be found in the front entry room with the display case.
