Books in the library are accessed by searching the library's online card catalog, located at the Reference Desk. Books may be located by searching by author, title, subject, or key word.
Most books are shelved by genre, or type of book. We have separate sections for fiction, junior fiction, non-fiction, short stories, DVDs and biographies. Additionally, oversized non-fiction books are shelved together on the Quarto shelves. Non-fiction books, and DVDs are shelved in Dewey Decimal order (see description below). Fiction, junior fiction, and short stories are shelved by author's last name; biographies are shelved by the subject's last name.
