Colorado Elementary School Ditches Dewey for Bookstore Model

SLJ – “Colorado’s Red Hawk Elementary School has gone Dewey-less—and so far the results have been great. The new school, which opened its doors just six weeks ago, is the only building in the St. Vrain Valley School District to scrap the Dewey Decimal system in favor of a more user-friendly bookstore model for organizing its 6,031-title collection. In fact, according to District Librarian Holli Buchter, Red Hawk is the only elementary school in the United States to ditch Dewey. (The only other one she knows about is located in Alberta, Canada).”
