that's interesting, as I recall our own library being like that .

various books in the 'childrens section' , such as the Peter Lowry "Model Rocketry:Hobby of Tommorrow", that I searched for for years.

and the 'adult' section had the handbook (notable out of date version),and a couple others ( one I recall was actually on making solid wood replicas of spacecraft, ala the old Strombecker model kits, don;t recall the name of that one, but quite interested - but disappointing when hunting for flying model rockets, lol )

Yea, I remember the solid wood replica book as well. either it had some airplanes too or it had a companion volume that had airplanes, and I carved a B-52 out of some pine wood.
