Around the Library with Dewey! The Ninety-Two's (92s)............

Investigate the J 92s.
(The J stands for Juvenile ~ which means it’s a book for kids)

If you are looking for a book about a certain person, you will probably find it in the 92s. Whether you want to read about Abraham Lincoln, David Beckham, Thomas Edison, Amelia Earhart, or Justin Bieber, this is the place to look.

Around the Library with Dewey! The Nine Hundreds............

Test out the J900s.
(The J stands for Juvenile ~ which means it’s a book for kids)

Do you know what country this flag represents? If you looked in the J900s, you would be able to figure out that it is the flag from Australia.  

In this section you could also learn all about pirates, Ancient Egypt, all the different countries in the world, and even the history of your own state of Connecticut. 

Some of the books you should check out from this section are My New York by Kathy Jakobsen, More than Moccasins by Laurie Carlson, Pyramids by Anne Millard, and History Year by Year by Peter Chrisp. 

After reading these books you will be able to tell all your friends what you have discovered about the world.
