In libraries, depending on the system of classification, books of fairy tales may be in a variety of places. Libraries using the Dewey Decimal System will probably keep most of their fairy tales books at call numbers beginning with 398, the Dewey number for folklore, especially 398.2 up to (but not including) 398.5. There may also be some collections of fairy tales in the short story section, with the call number 808.83. In libraries using the Library of Congress classification system, it will probably be helpful to look in the catalog under the subject heading Fairy Tales to find out where they keep their books. Remember, you can always ask a librarian for assistance!

Once again, the Dewey Decimal System will probably shelve most books about fairy tales in the call number 398, particularly 398 up to (but not including) 398.5. They are typically mixed in with actual storybooks of fairy and folk tales, so some browsing will probably be necessary. Useful Library of Congress subject headings might include: Fairy Tales'Classification, Fairy Tales'History and Criticism, and Symbolism in Fairy Tales, among others. Remember, it is always helpful to ask a librarian for guidance, and he or she will be happy to assist you.
