Yes, the library has fiction books, but they are not located in a separate fiction section the way that they are in most public libraries. Instead, works of fiction are classified within the Library of Congress Classification system, just as nonfiction books are. Most fiction is found in Class P.

These are the Library of Congress Classification ranges occupied by a few well-known authors. As you can see, these authors are not organized alphabetically. Furthermore, biographies, literary criticism, and other books that are about (but not written by) an author are placed near the author's own works.

Ray Bradbury: PS3503

Suzanne Collins: PZ7.C6837

Stephen King: PS3561.I483

Stephanie Meyer: PZ7.M571

Edgar Allan Poe: PS2600 - PS2622

Mark Twain: PS1305 - PS1322
