A video explaining how you can find books in our new genrefied library.

We Have Genrefied the Library!
What does that even mean?!?  How am I going to find any books?!

Basically, we have moved all the fiction books around and instead of organizing them by the author's last name, we have organized them by genre.  So all the fantasy books are together.  All the sports books are together.  Then within each genre section, the books are organized by the author's last name.  This will make it much easier for you to find the books that you like to read.  If you are like me and love to read fantasy books, then all of those books are now together in one section!  Here are the fiction genres that we have in the library:
*Science Fiction
*Realistic Fiction
*Historical Fiction
*Graphic Novels
Don't forget, many books can, and do, fall into multiple genres!  So just because a book is in the Realistic Fiction section doesn't mean it doesn't have other genres present.  It could have a little romance or humor or even a mystery.  We just put it in the genre section that it most resembled.  But this is where I need your help!! If you read a book and you feel like we have put it in the wrong genre section, let us know!!  Please stop by and let us know what you think of the changes!  We want your feedback.  And be watching for a video tour of the library and a tutorial for how to find the genre section when you search for a book online.
