We’re starting off our Learn About Your Library series with a post about books. Yes, libraries are so much more than books, but it seems like a fitting place to begin. Books at Brookens are selected for a variety of reasons. Either they support the curriculum, are requested by a faculty member or fit the scope of a popular collection like audio books. So that’s the why, but have you ever wondered how a book gets to the shelf and is available for you to check out? Well here’s a simplified visual of how it works.
P.S. If you’ve noticed that most library books no longer have their book jackets, you may have wondered what we’ve done with those. We put some of them to good use and made artwork out of them. Be sure to check the hallway when exiting the library towards the Brookens Classrooms for an example of our Book Jacket Art.
