Re: Early/intermediate chapter book section

March 20th 2019

Re: Early/intermediate chapter book section We did that a few years ago and it has proved to be popular.  We call it "Chapter Books" and put a sign describing the section as books for grades 2-4. We got "Chapter Book" stickers from Demco and put those on the books. The paperbacks are interfiled but still have the sticker. We found the kids were asking for  "Chapter Books" as a format. Our section is shelved in the same area as our longer Juvenile Fiction.Amy SearsHead of Youth ...Continue Reading

Early/intermediate chapter book section

March 20th 2019

Early/intermediate chapter book section Hi all, I am exploring the possibility of creating a new children's section in between Easy Readers and Juvenile Fiction for early chapter books with larger font, more pictures, and fewer pages than the longer chapter books.  Do you have a section like this in your library? If so, what do you call it? First chapters? Intermediate?  Thank you in advance for your response! All the best, Liz Hoens Liz Hoens Children's Librarian Rahway Public Library 2 City Hall Plaza ...Continue Reading

Please help a colleague with a short public library survey

March 13th 2019

Hi, Everyone, A colleague of mine is doing a research study with public library staff who work with children/youth/teens.  She’d love to get as many responses as possible from as many places as possible.  A lofty goal, I know!  She’s interested in hearing from you as library staff about how you think about your jobs. It’s a 5-10 minute survey.  It should be fun – there’s even a drawing part if you’re artistic because the survey has a drawing component – it may be easier to do on a smart phone o ...Continue Reading
