Every Monday, we’ll see what book Dewey is reading! Over the summer, all Dewey’s books will be nonfiction science books in honor of the Fizz Boom Read Summer Reading Program! And since Dewey is named in honor of Melville Dewey, the creator of the Dewey Decimal System of Classification, we will learn a bit about how the Dewey Decimal System works, too!

So, what’s Dewey reading today…?


Dewey’s reading Dinosaurs Life Size by Darren Naish! This book’s call number is J 567.9 Naish. Librarians read the call number as J five sixty-seven point nine (not five hundred sixty-seven point nine). This is a call number that every librarian knows by heart! The number 567.9 is for dinosaurs!
