Pennsylvania's Indian Valley Public Library Goes with 'Bookstore Arrangement' for Nonfiction

Link to December 31 Souderton Independent article, "New setup encourages visitors to browse at Indian Valley Public Library".

Excerpt:     Want information on aging?

At the Indian Valley Public Library, you can find books that cover theological issues surrounding the topic, sociological works about it, as well as ones regarding health and places to retire.

And they’re all grouped together.

“Things were always in two, three, four places and it was confusing to people,” said Linda Beck, the library’s director.

Nonfiction books, though, are now being displayed more like in a bookstore.

Topic areas include computers and consumer, nature, the sciences, history, leisure, biography and health and medicine
