We have rearranged the whole J398 section  to make it easier for you, the patron to find your favorite fairy tales, nursery rhymes, scary stories, etc.  Just look under Mother Goose that is hanging from the ceiling for these stories.  Looking for Cinderella, Rapunzel, Gingerbread Boy, etc., look in J398.2 (Story title).  Looking for a tale from another land?  Search J398.2094(Country).  Check out our Tall tales– Paul Bunyan, Mike Fink, etc. You can now find them in J398.22(Person). What about Fables like Anansi, Aesop, and Uncle Remus– find these in J398.21(Author).  We love mermaid, dragon, and mythical beast tales, and they are now found in J398.2454(mythical beast name).  Who doesn’t love a scary story  or a Monster Tale?  Find these in J398.25(Author) and J398.45(Monster name).  Finally, find your favorite Mother Goose  and nursery rhymes in J398.8(Moth or by Author).  As always, if you’re unable to find something, just ask a Children’s Librarian.
