Library Skills

What do you know about how a library is organized?

Welcome readers, when anyone enters a public or school library you will notice:

  • Books, bookshelves, magazines, computer banks, newspapers, art work
  • People searching and browsing, people working, people working together, people reading and writing, people smiling, people contemplating what they are looking at
  • It is quiet! People are using whisper voices only… unless there is story time or a special guest or a musical concert is process…

In any case, inquiry minds want to know… and so the searching continues. A quest for what is unknown, what happened in the past, what might happen “if…,” and simply just for the fun of it.
