Mrs. Readerpants’ genre-fied library
This year’s plan is to genre-fy the fiction section! The goal is to make it easier for students to find books they will love by genre: Each shelf will be labelled with a genre and color-coded spine labels for easy browsing. Oftentimes students do not easily recognize authors, even of books they love, so the way the fiction section is organized by author’s last name is outdated and clunky for kids to use.
Mrs. Readerpants, one of my favorite school library blogs, nicely outlines the process of genre-fying and answers every question imaginable about the process.
Looking forward to starting this project at Loyola School this spring!
