Library Makes Shelving Change

The Findlay Hancock County Public Library recently implemented a new shelving system for its collection of adult fiction books, returning to shelving based on author name instead of fiction categories. In 2008, the library moved to the fiction category method of shelving but grappled with issues. It was sometimes difficult to figure out what genre a book fits into, and often an author would have books divided across several categories. By returning to the author’s names cataloging, patrons will find it easier to locate books by their favorite authors. The library has over 64,000 books— one of the finest collections in the state!
