librarianpirate asked: ohohoh! What is your system for organizing picture books? #piratessteal
In the Fall of 2008, our then-Head of Childrens’ Services Gretchen Caserotti reorganized the books in our Childrens’ Library to create the First Five Years Picture Book Collection. Typically, picture books are arranged by the last name of the author, which means absolutely nothing to kids 5 and under. In the reorganization, truck books are with other truck books, dogs are with dogs, faeries are with faeries, etc. I recommend you check out her slideshare presentation.
