Genrefication is the term used for arranging books by the genre or the type of book. We have our fiction section arranged by genre, so students may browse through Adventure, Animals, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Humor, Mystery, Realistic Fiction, Science Fiction, Sports, Nvels, in Verse, , Nonfiiction, Biography, Romance, and Spooky. We are seeing mores tudents have success in finding books to read independently.
A Note about responsible reading
In a library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed. What is interesting and appropriate for eleven-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for fourteen-year-olds and vice versa. When students first visit the library each year, Mrs. Parks will tell them that "Libraries are all about choice. If you choose a book that makes you uncomfortable or that would make your parents uncomfortable, please return it and find a book you can completely enjoy."
Parents can help students enjoy the library. Ask students what they are reading and talk to them about their choice.
