"We disposed of them all (as well as VHS tapes) when we reopened in January 2016.  I have had people wanting to donate them, but no one wanting to check them out!"

"The back of the title page shows the same as the LOC. Since posting the original I think the same problems might apply to young children's books. I suspect that a lot of embellishment to Bible stories occurs. Sometimes, where will the book have…"

Classification Help (Kingsbury)

I classified Friends of Christ by Karen Kingsbury following the CIP as 232.9, which seemed OK to me. I got called on this, and shown the introduction where it is clearly shown that this is fiction. Checking Classify.occl.org, I find 948 libraries also choose 232.9, with no other number chosen. Has anybody chosen fiction? Putting it in NF seems to go against what I have been told to do, unless I use the rule that a book with two subjects should use the predominate subject.  Maybe my choice should be what the Library Director likes. Any comments?See More

Cassette Tapes Withdrawal

I been withdrawing cassette tapes and hope to get rid of all of them. Our library director would like to keep some, especially some of our services. We have lots of our services on cassette that have not been cataloged -- I'm not concerned with those.I'd like to hear what other church libraries are doing about cassettes. I could suggest copying to CDs but that could mean lots of work.  Doing a copy to Mp3-CD is another option, but adds a bit more work.Note: Our current services are on CDs, but not cataloged. Only the recent CDs receive light circulation.And yes, we have slide projectors, video cassettes, film strips, overhead projectors, card files, etc. Hard to part with our old friends.See More

Reorganizing Children's Non-fiction : A Dewey Hybrid Model

I came across an article in the ALSC blog on how one library has reorganized the shelving of Children's non-fiction book. Their idea is to select a small number of subjects and file books within those headings in Dewey order.

To Read is to Fly

In my wanderings in the web I came across a blog by photographer Steve McCurry that I found to be an interesting combination of great photographs with quotations that relate to readers.
