Barbara Park, author of the well-loved Junie B. Jones series, has died at age 66 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. In 1992, Park began writing about the smart-mouthed kindergartener and since then, has written more than 30 chapter books starring Junie. Her books have sold more than 55 million copies in North America and have also inspired a musical theater production. Despite her never having written a book specifically for adults, the works of Barbara Park have been enjoyed by those of all ages.
“I’m not actually sure I’m grown-up enough for grown-up books.” – Barbara Park

How do I find a fiction book or picture book in the CRC? Here are three ways in which you can search.
1.You can begin by looking the book up in the BG catalog if you know the title of the book. If the book says available please write down the call number.
- Example: I am looking for the book “Mocking Jay” by Suzanne Collins. The call number is juv C713m and it is available.
- What does the call number stand for? The juv stands for juvenile, the C stands for first letter of the author’s last name Collins and the number represents where it will sit on the shelf.
- Look for the marked fiction section. Find the blue flag with the letter C on it. The book will then be in number order.
2. If you do not have a title in mind we suggest browsing the shelves. Look for the shelf range that says Fiction and all the ranges to the left are fiction books.
3. You can also search by the author’s last name. Look for the first letter of the author’s last name on a blue shelf marker and browse that section for the author.
The CRC uses the Dewey Decimal system much like the school libraries.
The staff in the CRC can also guide you in the right direction.
The CRC is looking to hire student assistants for the spring semester.
