Both the regular book collection and the reference areas are also medium-traffic and equally accessible from the library entrance and from the class seating areas. The arrangement and height of book shelves insure that the entire library is easily visible. Glass windows in the library office and a security mirror in the far corner also help with library supervision.
Reference books are nonfiction books are arranged by the Dewey Decimal System. The fiction collection is divided into several genres which include classic, mystery, fantasy, sports, science fiction, Christian, guys, and girls. The HCHS library catalog (OPAC) is used to find books.
Two low-traffic seating areas for classes are located to minimize distractions for students working there. In addition, a low-traffic library work area is located behind the circulation desk and includes library offices, the workroom, and the magazine room. Students do not usually need access to these areas.
