One reason libraries are terrific is how they introduce children to reading.

Such organization!

melvil_dewey Melvil Dewey (left) the originator of the Dewey decimal system had his share of critics int the world of libraries. Not only was he known for designing a famous system to organize libraries, he was known to be a serial harasser. Shame, Mr. Dui, shame.

(Dewey was a proponent of phonetical spelling and preferred his name was spelled “Dui.”
