Hello there! Welcome to a new series we are doing called: ‘Sections’. We’re going to highlight different sections in the library to help people discover parts of the library they have either passed up or don’t know about.
You might remember that the Nonfiction paperback books were on rotating shelves near the 900s. More likely however, is that you might not have ever known we even had a nonfiction paperback section. We do! And this is what it looks like!
You can find this section on the 2nd floor right by the stairs or across from the new location of the Reference Desk. This section is great for browsing, especially if you are going to take a book on vacation.
The section is organized by ascending Dewey Decimal number from the left side of the section to the right. If you look in our catalog and see ‘Paperback – 2nd Floor’ under ‘Location’, this is where it is. The books will still have a Dewey Decimal number but their location is in the Nonfiction Paperback section and their Dewey number will have ‘PB’ at the beginning, as seen below:
Here’s just some of the books on our Nonfiction Paperback shelves:
