I'm a civilian, not a library professional. I'm looking for an appropriately symbolic and meaningful Dewey number to put on a cemetery footstone for my Mother, a career librarian who loved most of all teaching children how to find books that they would enjoy and learn from in a public library. The headstone will contain the usual biographical dates, so the footstone is the place for a Dewey number. No explanation will go with it. Just the number. Any suggestions?

The Dewey number for public libraries is 027.4


Also for consideration: The Dewey number for children's librarianship is 027.625.

The Dewey system is a brilliant way for organising a library. We use the system in Kent County Council in the UK and once implemented it is very easy to use. I don't think that there is a better way.
