Hazel Mackin Public Library: Experience library's redesigned collection

Written by Hazel Mackin Public Library director Krissa Coleman

If you have an emerging reader who is heading to chapter books, we are excited for you to come in and experience our redesigned collection.

Juvenile chapter books have always been a difficult area to select books from because young readers typically don't know what they want to read. New chapter readers and even those who are comfortable with reading bigger books can now see our collection in a new way other than the Dewey System.

We can empower students and parents by just having all of the books sorted in topical genres such as historical fiction, mysteries, graphic novels, sports, adventure, fantasy, choose your own ending, animals, scary and realistic fiction.

Stop by and start finding your new favorite books.
