If your library is like mine then you get several questions with enough frequency that you might have a bald spot.
“Where are the scary stories?”
“Where are the making stuff books?”
“Where are the princess books?”
These are the questions that have librarians trying out genre shelving. I am not ready to do this in my library. Instead I want to aid my students as they search. In their lives they are always going to need to look for something. They need search strategies.
I made a simple poster to help my students remember which search terms to use when beginning their search for Scary Stories. I liked that one so much that I brainstormed other topics students often ask about and made a few more signs. They are yours for the download if you need such a tool in your library!
