Books about people from the Renaissance

If you are looking for a biography, you can go directly to the biography section of the library.  It is located in the non-fiction room. The books are arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the person about whom the book is written.  There are also collective biographies, which are books that have information about selected groups of people.  For instance, you might find a book about important women in history or explorers or Black mathematicians. Most of these books are in the 920 section.
