I'm absolutely opposite in my feelings about shelving nonfiction.  I like
all the nonfiction together.

It keeps me, the teachers, and the students from having to search two
places.  Since I integrated them 6 years ago in one building, it has worked
very well.  I am now in two buildings, so after about a month of the two
place searching, I integrated the second building's nonfiction.  I have had
no complaints and everybody seems to choose what is appropriate for their
level.  The library clerk catches it if a first grader picks a 5th grade
level book and helps him or her find something more at her level.  We use
the five finger check as well to help the students determine if the book is
at their reading level.  This has really helped also when you have a fifth
grader who is way below reading level and doesn't want to be seen in the
Easy section of the library.
