Dewey Decimal System
for Non-Fiction

Melvil Dewey was a librarian who lived from 1851 to 1931. He was so unhappy with the way the books were NOT organized in his library that he invented the
Dewey Decimal System
. It's a system that breaks the non-fiction books into different topics and assigns each topic a unique call number. Then all of the books about a topic, for example, dogs are found in the same shelf area.
