New Look for Fiction Books!

 

We’ve done a little bit of moving and shaking things up in the Fiction section!  All of the books are now organized by GENRE…ta dah!  What does this mean for you?  Well…ever asked us this question?

“Where are the scary books?” —> now you can find ALL OF THEM in Horror & Paranormal!  Same thing goes for any other type of book you’d like to read!  Here is how it works…

genrecolorsign

You’ll find the colors on the spines of the books which tells you which genre they are.  We have posted signs posted all throughout the area to help you…pay attention to the signs and you will SUCCEED in finding that special book!
