Another Dewey Rebellion


Link to September 21 Southtown Star (south suburban Chicago) article, "Dewey overdue for a makeover, librarians say."

Excerpt:
At 6 a.m. on a Sunday morning, when most library patrons are pulling the covers over their heads, refusing to acknowledge the rising sun, two bold and daring librarians are stirring at the Frankfort Public Library, shuffling books and tearing off those time-honored Dewey Decimal System numbers that no one really understood anyway.

And more power to 'em!
