So, what’s Dewey reading today…?


Dewey’s reading The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket! This book’s call number is J Snicket. The Bad Beginning is the first book in The Series of Unfortunate Events. There are 13 books in this series. Wow! That’s a lot of books! Did you know that you can search for a series in the catalog?

Most of the time when you are searching for a book you will search by author or title. But the library’s catalog will let you search by the name of a series as well. You choose “series” instead of “author”, “title”, or “keyword”.  Some popular series include The Magic Tree House series, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and The A to Z Mysteries series. Please note that searching by series does not always work right. When you search for The Red Blazer Girls series, you will see books 2, 3, and 4 but not book 1. So sometimes you’ll need to do a little detective work.
