Welcome back to Sections, our new series about different parts of the library after we moved things around. We’re going to highlight a section that we have greatly improved thanks to our community’s feedback. Here’s the Biography section.

You can easily identify if a book is a biography by the sticker on the spine: a green book with the words ‘biography’ on it placed above the call number sticker. The section is ordered by Dewey Decimal number, beginning with the 0’s and ending with the 999’s.
