Adult Fiction

The entire fiction collection is located toward the front of the library. It is separated into a new books area, a section for large print books and general collection. New books stay in their specific area for approximately 6 months prior to being moved to the general collection. There is a 2 week loan period for all books, with the availability of renewal if needed. Fiction is not separated by genre, but identified by applicable stickers on their spines. Some basic categories one would find are: western, science fiction, mysteries, Español and various holidays.
