A biography is a written account of someone's life. You will also find autobiographies in this section, which are written accounts of a person's life written by that person. Our biography collection includes the popular "Who Was?" series, which are book summaries about many important people throughout history. In the library, you will know a book is a biography if it has a round blue circle on the spine. If it has a pink circle, you will know that is a collective biography. Collective biography books are biographies about a group of people, such as a band. So if you are looking for a book about John Lennon, check out the blue-sticker biographies, but if you are looking for the Beatles, search for a pink-sticker collective biography!
Nonfiction books are any book based on actual events, real people, or facts. Our nonfiction books are classified using the Dewey Decimal System, and have a green circle on the spine. Included in nonfiction, in the Arts & Recreation category, are graphic novels. You can find them at 741.5. We have a great graphic novel collection! Come check it out!
Fiction, or fantasy, are any books that are feigned, imagined, or made up. These stories are not real, but can include any type of fantasy story:
- Science Fiction
- Young Adult
- Historical Fiction
- Sports Fiction

And so many more! Our expanisve fiction collection is so varied, you are sure to find a book to fall in love with in this section!
