Girls from the local Sparks group dropped in to the North Gower Branch during Library Month to learn how to find books quickly in the library, using the Dewey Decimal system.
The system was invented by Melvil Dewey in 1872, and is currently used in hundreds of thousands of libraries, as an easy and simple way to find books according to their subject.
Supervisor Karen Craig gave each girl a paper ribbon with the name of a book and its classification number, so they could practise finding the books in the library.
“This is an important skill that people will use throughout life,” Karen says. “We were so happy to see the girls, and to show them around our library.”
