From a distributor, many graphic novels in the Bellview Elementary School library come pre-labeled for shelving according to Dewey classification (741.5) on the non-fiction shelf. But given high interest in graphic novels among Bellview library users, teacher-librarian Lauren Hall and I are shelving them in a higher-profile area.

Among selections written about here, the Bellview collection includes Hereville by Barry Deutsch, Calamity Jack by Shannon and Dean Hale and graphic-format nonfiction.

Other titles in the Bellview collection include the Amulet series by Kazu Kibuishi, Bone by Jeff Smith and D.C. Comics super-hero adventures. Some selections have been honored as nominees for the Oregon Reader’s Choice Awards. There’s a wide variety of subjects and perspectives addressed in these graphic-format books.
