ADULT SUMMER LEARNING PROGRAM

DIY

STAY CURIOUS 2015 – DIY: “DEWEY” IT YOURSELF

This summer’s Adult Learning Program is all about following your curiosity and learning new things. Find the Dewey Decimal section(s) that interest you, and make this summer a hands-on experience. We have lots of materials, online classes, and workshops to help you pursue your interests — so join us for a summer of learning!

WHAT IS “DEWEY”?

The Longmont Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification System developed by librarian Melville Dewey (1851-1931) to organize non-fiction collections. Materials are assigned call numbers that relates to their subject matter. Materials that deal with the same subject matter will have similar numbers. So, when you think of subject areas you’re interested in, librarians think of Dewey sections!
