Genrefication - What does it mean to "genrefy" the library?
This summer, all of the fiction books in the WES library were categorized into 13 sections: Adventure, Animal, Classic, Fantasy, Historical, Horror, Humor, Mystery, Realistic, Science, Sports, Traditional and Graphica. Each section has an identifying poster, a genre label, unique call number prefix and tinted spine label protectors, all of which should make finding and re-shelving the books easier for both our students and parent volunteers. Each book was re-classified in the card catalog to reflect the new category of fiction. The categories are aligned with the Fountas and Pinnell Genre Study used by classroom teachers.
