Fiction or Nonfiction

Page history last edited by MrsK Books 3 years, 10 months ago

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 quest or a musical concert in 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.

 

In the table below, you can browse while you learn what is considered fiction and what is considered nonfiction.

 

Enjoy your discoveries,

MrsK

 An image of a magic wand

"Gently, reader, gently moving,

Wipe your feet beside the door;

Hush your voice to whisper soothing,

Take your hat off, I implore!

Mark your number, plainly, rightly,

From the catalog you see;

With the card projecting slightly,

Then your book bring unto me,

unto me."

Here Lies the Librarian by    Richard Peck
