Yesterday, I was in two different libraries–I had my books reserved at the wrong one. One thing I noticed was the YA section wasn’t broken down into categories: SF, Mystery, Horror ect. Some of the books had additional labels above the YA that would say Historical, SF ect but not all. I wondered why that was. I can understand lumping all of YA together but shouldn’t it still be split up?
If I wanted to read a Science Fiction, YA novel, but had no clue about the authors, It would be sooo much easier just to go to the YA-SF section and browse.
And if that’s not an option, at least label all the YA books with their respective categories.
I need a genie bottle.
So ladies and gents, thoughts? Any librarians know why it’s set up like this? Do you think it will ever change?
