FINDING BOOKS AT THE LIBRARY
The Dewey Decimal Classification(DDC) is a numbering system used by librarians to find and shelve books. There are 10 major categories of numbers. For example Geography and History subjects are located in the 900s. These 10 categories are then divided into subsections also by 10s. All non-fiction books are shelved using the DDC. Watch the video below to help understand how the Dewey Decimal System Works.
Your favorite chapter books can be found together in the Children’s Department at main. They are shelved in alphabetical order by the first 3 letters of the author’s last name. Have you read any of the I Survived series books by Lauren Tarshis? You’ll find them on the shelf as J TAR.
