Fiction and New Organization

In the past, if someone wanted to look for a fantasy, horror, or other type of book, he would have to walk up and down the shelves looking for small stickers. We asked, you voted, and we made it happen … the fiction starts with genres! In order from closest to the office to farthest away, you can find horror, romance, fantasy, science fiction, and sports. The rest of the fiction comes after that. Each genre has its on colorful, see-through sticker on the call number on the spine. For example, all of the sports books have a yellow sticker.

We hope this makes it easier for you to find the books you want to read!
