Dewey Who?

You've probably heard of the Dewey Decimal system, one way to group items together often used in libraries. The Dewey himself, Melvin Dewey, created the system in 1876 with the idea that all items could be seperated into ten distinct categories (and then further divided and further divided and..well, you get the idea).

With school starting *gasp* next week, check out our back to school displays of picture books and parenting books about school. Your Dewey number for the week - J 372 - for more books for kids about going to school.

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

We, your humble Tigard Youth Services Librarians, are super excited about our new web venture! Families can find book reviews, info about great websites and other online resources, reading tips, news about programs and special events, and so much more on this blog.

Check out our weekly schedule on the right hand side of the page. We'll also feature pictures from recent events, lists of helpful links, and other snazzy tidbits.

So peruse the page and find out what your Children's and Teen Librarians are talking about. As always, we'd love to hear what you drop us a line from time to time.
To the books....!
