Hi, I have just finished my first year as Head Librarian. Previously, I was a classroom teacher for 25 years. My query is, how do other schools classify their books. For non-fiction I use the Dewey system, but we seem to have too many groups for fiction: Junior Fiction, Primary, Picture Books, Young Adult, and Fiction.

Personally, I believe that Young Adult fiction should just be classified as Fiction with perhaps a colored sticker to show it is for young teens. (Although, Young Adult is considered for 10-18 years olds!) I am interested to hear what others do in their libraries.
