Once you execute your search, you will be given a list of results. Clicking on a book will display more details and a description. If you wish to locate a book, be sure to record the call number. The beginning of the call number tells you where to look for a book:
F = fiction

a number = nonfiction GN = graphic novel or book
SP = novels in Spanish FR = novels in French LOCATING BOOKS IN THE MEDIA CENTER Books can be located in the media center with the use of their Call Number. Most books can be found alphabetically in the area designated. The one exception to this is in Nonfiction, where books are first organized numerically, and then when numbers are the same, alphabetically. Below are pictures showing were you will find each kind of book. Remember, even if there is no one at the front desk, you can still check out books by using the self checkout sheets on the clipboard on the counter.
