### Practice 1: At the Library

Read the selection and graphic, and then answer the questions that follow.

 (1) "I can't find anything at this library!" said Mia's brother. (2) Mia took a book off the shelf. "It's easy," she said. "Look. The part of the book you see on the shelf is the spine, and this number at the bottom is the book's address—where it 'lives' in the library. This is fiction. Fiction's arranged in ABC order by author's last name. See, F for Fiction and Ca for the first two letters of the name, Carroll." (3) "But what about nonfiction?" her brother asked. (4) "It's arranged by subject," Mia said. "Libraries use the Dewey decimal system . . . there's a period to divide numbers into parts," she added, in case he didn't know. "Nonfiction's divided into 10 large groups, from 000 to 900. Then each group's divided into many smaller ones." (5) Mia's brother still looked confused so she showed him a poster on one of the bookcases. "Look, the library lists the groups for you." (6) Just then, Mr. Reyes, the librarian came by. He smiled, "And if you still don't find what you want, ask a librarian . . . that's what we're here for!"
