Holy Quran being in the lower most shelf

Dear Incharge person, I am a regular user of canton public library and i enjoy this facility and resources here. I was very happy to see a seperate section of ISLAM in the library. I have one suggestion that the Holy Book Quran is placed in the lower most shelf in this section, which comes almost at the level of shoes of people walking by the self. Any holy book whether its Bible or Quran should be placed in one of the upper shelves. I will be obliged if you consider my humble request.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your suggestion. All materials in the library are shelved according to the Dewey Decimal Classification system. Where they end up on the shelves is simply random based on space availability. Books often move up or down a shelf or two with regularity as materials are checked in and out. Natural shelf shifts occur and a book that is on a bottom shelf today might be on a middle shelf or a top shelf tomorrow. Again we appreciate hearing from you.
