Please Excuse Our Mess

We are in the process of changing the call numbers on our Big Books. 

  • Materials found at the beginning of the collection have a Dewey call number.  (ex.: BB H1741 app 1996 K-8 )
  •  Materials using our in-house call number are behind those materials. (ex.: IRC BB P190 K-3 )

Please ask the Librarian at the reference desk for assistance locating the materials.
