Realistic Fiction Books for Students
Realistic fiction is a popular genre for Literature Circles because kids can relate to them.

The Library Genre-fication Project
Last January, I attended a workshop at our regional education service center. One of the sessions was about genre-fying your library, presented by a local high school librarian. The librarian told us about how she genre-fied her fiction section and the enormous increase in circulation her library saw as a result. Her enthusiasm and simple step-by-step instructions inspired me to do it myself.
