Spread the books out over the middle shelves. They will be easier to look though and new books can be interfiled as received.
I agree the top and bottom shelves are the low rent districts people just dont browses them. Use those for special items that people will seek out, not general.
Pull out the reference books. Sort by type and file on a low rent shelf.
See if we have enough non-fiction to pull out and treat like the reference books. We probably wont have enough and in that case, these will get interfiled with the fiction.
For the bulk of the books, simply alphabetize by author and shelf
It's fiction SLY....2010-12-10 07:13:18 by momandgram
There was a movie called Solyent Green (sp?) awhile back..remember it? It was about a world that was over populated and was running out of food. So, they "the man" decided to recycle people to be made into food.
Oh NO...NEWS ALERT...PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE MADE INTO FOOD! You know..because there was a FICTION book written and MOVIE made IT WILL COME TRUE!
It's pure and simple fiction..period. It's not happening. No woman is going to have her child taken away because someone "thinks" she is going to abuse/neglect her child UNLESS she has a PRIOR history of neglect or abuse
