How to use the Riverdale Catalog
Using the library catalog, type in the last name of the famous African American person you are researcing and then click keyword. The call number of any books that are biographies will have an upper case B and then the last name of the person or the first three letters of this person's last name.
Use the library catalog to see if we own a book about the person you want to learn more about.
