Adult Fiction
Fiction is the telling of stories which are not real. More specifically, fiction is an imaginative form of narrative. Although the word fiction is derived from the Latin fingo, fingere, finxi, fictum, "to form, create", works of fiction need not be entirely imaginary and may include real people, places, and events.

Adult Non-Fiction
Non-fiction is an account or representation of a subject which is presented as fact. This presentation may be accurate or not; that is, it can give either a true or a false account of the subject in question. However, it is generally assumed that the authors of such accounts believe them to be truthful at the time of their composition. At the Roanoke Public Library this also includes Local History.
