Hello Sarah,
When I worked at the Falmouth Memorial Library, we did shelve series books separately from the Jfiction collection. It made it easier for parents and children to find the title. I didn't see that it affected readers selecting books from the regular fiction section. Children and parents moved from one area to the next with ease. It was just a great way to keep the series all in one spot and it allowed all the titles that might be written by different authors (I'm thinking 39 Clues) to be bundled together.

Hi Sarah,

Love the idea BUT... I used to shelve children's series separately, at a former library, but ran out of space and found it really hard to keep shifting around, weeding out the "not-so-popular" series. I suppose if you have a big space or section, it'll work really well. Right now, because of our ongoing American Girl Book Club, I'm highlighting all American Girls books on display. So, I cluster on occasions.

I would love to hear from libraries who shelves their juvenile series fiction separately from their regular juvenile fiction.
