|Oh, my. How to find|
the book I want?
How do people find the library materials they want?
That is a big question, especially when you consider the unique challenges of youth librarianship. How do pre-readers find the books they want when they're not yet able to read spine labels? How do lower elementary students navigate Dewey non-fiction when decimals aren't taught until the fourth grade? How do middle grade and young adult readers find what they want to read when they tend to notice plot points and pacing more than authors and titles? How easy is it to browse versus search the library stacks?
|Historical Fiction! Dogs! Humor!|
Science Fiction! Mystery!
Do genre stickers help?
I'd love to hear from a bunch of librarians from a variety of libraries I want to know what works for you and your kids.
