Learn Science Projects Learn Science Projects The activities here are fun because they arise from a fun dynamic in which the monitor develops a game that interacts with the recipient, whether a child, adolescent, an adult or an older person. And they are teaching because we use resources more effectively so that the recipients understand them easily.

You will need several rolls of book tape and color-code labels to match the genres you chose and the estimated number of books for each section. Be sure also to order at least extra rolls of color labels and tape because you will also have to genre-fy new books as you receive them.
This is beneficial if you want many different genres I have 18 genres now, and finding 18 colors that didn't look too similar to each other was not easy.
In researching sources for more label colors here in China, I found the labels below on Amazon. The first link the one to the far left includes 26 different colors, including matte silver, matte gold, shiny silver, and shiny gold.

We decided to put the section name in front of the existing call number for that book. Another librarian in our district inspired by the same workshop I attended put the color code in parentheses after the call number instead. Another possibility would be to put the genre name in the Sublocation or Copy Categories fields in Destiny, which would enable librarians and students to print book lists by genre.
It does not really matter what your circulation system is or how you decide to do it. The most important thing is that you are consistent and your patrons can still find the books they want easily.
This part is very slow and detailed, but we had a great time doing it. The general order was: For some books this will be obvious just by looking at the cover art. Other books will require some investigation. If in doubt, consult circulation catalog, Goodreads, Amazon, BN, students, other librarians before picking a genre.
Cover it with book tape so it stays on. You'll still need to be able to look up the book in the catalog and find the it in the library!
