The Library is divided into:
Made up stories about imaginary people or events. These are shelved near the entrance to the Library on the left hand side. Fiction books are arranged in Alphabetical order using the author's surname.
True fact or information books. These are kept on shelves on either side of the computer tables. They are arranged under subject areas such as history, sport and cookery. They each have a subject or Dewey number between 001 and 999 on the spine of the book.
Dewey Decimal Classification is the system most frequently used in libraries, although other systems exist, particularly in academic or specialist libraries.
Invented by Melvil Dewey, an American librarian who lived from 1851 to 1931, the system numbers books by their subject matter in the following way.
000 Generalia including computers
100 Philosophy and Psychology
300 Social Sciences
700 The Arts
