    GENREFICATION: We have Changed…   The fiction section is now reorganized by GENRE: this means that books from the same categories are grouped together.

    This will help you find quickly books that you like without searching the entire fiction section. Each section is arranged alphabetically by author’s last name.

    The genre categories in our library are: Graphic Novels, Classics, Horror, Sports, Historical Fiction, Adventure, Romance, Mystery, LGBT, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Realistic Fiction.
