Looking for our personal finance section? The Dewey Decimal System was invented before 401Ks or mutual funds were an everyday concern. When we moved into the new building, we rearranged our nonfiction books to bring areas of the Dewey Decimal System together into groups that modern library members would like to browse. We're calling these sections "glades" and each one pulls from different parts of Dewey to create a collection of books across related subjects.
If you're thinking about that college visit, updating your resume or cover letter, looking for financial or investing advice, writing your will or trust, or learning english as a second language, then the Work Glade is the area for you. You can find titles like the Encyclopedia of Careers and Vocational Guidance which will help you determine which career is right for you. You'll also find personal finance advice from Suze Orman, Michael Lewis and Robert T. Kiyosaki. The old standard What Color is Your Parachute can be found at Work 650.14 Bolles.
To check on the economy from 1860 and have a little fun doing it, check out The Value of a Dollar to see what a dollar could purchase in years past. The librarian who oversees Work is Blanche Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org). As always, feel free to contact her with ideas, suggestions or questions about all things Work.
