Description

Finding a book you want in a library is a necessary skill to being an independent library patron. Libraries have books organized alphabetically, by an author’s last name, and separate fiction from nonfiction; even if the library is genrefied. Students need to be able to: 

  • Quickly read an end cap to determine if the book they want is in that aisle.
  • Read a spine label to find the specific author they’re looking for. 
  • Know approximately where in the alphabetical order that author’s name will be in the stacks.
  • Search the library catalog to find titles, authors, and topics that they love.
  • Quickly read an end cap or library signs to determine if the book they want is on that shelf.
  • Read a spine label to find the specific dewey decimal.
  • Read a spine label to quickly identify an author they’re looking for. 

As school librarians it’s important for our students to independently find books. For young students to do this, they need to 

  • practice numerical and alphabetical order.
  • know that fiction books are organized by an author’s last name, what letter that begins with, and how to use library signage to locate it. 
  • know that nonfiction books are organized by general topics separated out by number prefixes.
