Look for these stickers on our book spines when browsing the shelves for your next book. Remember, books can be more than one genre!
Full of action and excitement with plenty of dangerous situations. These stories are often set far from home.
Magical tales with creatures like elves, unicorns and more. Wizards and talking animals are often the characters in these stories.
Graphic novels are comic book and manga style books and can be any type of story from fantasy to historical fiction to adventure.
Stories set in the past, either recent or distant, with made-up characters. Sometimes these stories happen during a real historical event, but sometimes they're just every day life in another time.
Tales of amateur detectives using clues and puzzles to solve cases and uncover spies and crimes both big and small.
|No sticker||Realistic Fiction
Stories set in the real world with every-day people and situations you might well encounter yourself. If there are aliens, talking animals, time travel or a diamond heist, it's probably not realistic fiction. These books are not stickered because this is the largest part of the Children's fiction collection.
Aliens, space travel, futuristic machines and technology are all what you'll find in these stories.
Whether it's the big game or learning how to play, these stories are about all kinds of sports. You'll find everything from baseball to bowling to snowboarding in these books.
Stories with ghosts, vampires, werewolves and other spooky creatures of the night to scare and amaze you.
Remember that not every book in our collection has a sticker. Sometimes books have overlapping genres when one genre is defined by the setting and the other is defined by the plot. Ask a librarian if you need help and don't be afraid to try a new genre!
