The Book Corner: News From the Burlington Public Library

The Burlington Public Library has a wide variety of upcoming programs and events.

The has a bunch of upcoming events and accounts of past events residents can check out. The following is a press release listing what has happened, is currently happening and what is coming soon.

Nonfiction, Biographies shifting

If you’ve looked for a biography or nonfiction title on the second floor lately you’ll know that the stacks are in a state of transition.  When looking for biographies,  (labeled with a “Bio” call number) many had difficulties since they were surrounded by books with Dewey numbers.  To rectify this and making it easier to find your book, we are shifting the biographies to the end of the collection.  This means that we are also shifting the history and geography (the “900’s”). 

Another change that has taken place is that the “Test Prep” collection and the travel guides have been moved to the end of the Reference stacks right across from the desk on the second floor.

If you need assistance finding a book during this change (and always), please ask at the Reference Desk.  The staff is always happy to help.

Gardening Magazines

Spring officially begins next week and I’m sure many of you are looking forward to gardening.  Did you know that the library has many magazines with gardening ideas?  “Horticulture”, “Mother Earth News”, and “Organic Gardening” are available. Other titles to check are “Better Homes and Gardens”, “Good Housekeeping”, “Ladies Home Journal”, “Martha Stewart Living”, and “Woman’s Day”.

The current issue will need to be viewed in the library, but back issues are always available to check out and take home.   Also, books can be found in a variety of areas. The Dewey call numbers to look for are 580’s for plants, 630’s for agriculture and 710’s for landscaping.  As always, the Reference Staff is available to help you find just what you’re looking for, so stop at the desk on the second floor.
