Under Dewey Deciriial The system that Is uged inmost of the libraries of the United Statesand the one that is in Mason City library Is the Dewey decimal system In order to assist the students andpersons of Mason City to findbooks in the li brary this system Is explained By this method the books on the same subject are shelved together and are numbered so that a person who is unfamiliar

chemistry and so on These groups in turn may be sub divided by decimal fractions as far as necessary Inhistory for In stance 9732 Indicates colonial his tory 9733 revolutionary 9734 middle period and
