The CofC library uses the Library of Congress call number system, which doesn't really separate fiction and non-fiction like the Dewey Decimal System does. 

In the Library of Congress call number system, fiction is part of the P ranges. The P ranges cover languages and literature and is divided by languages and nationalities. 

The best approach is to search the library catalog for what you are looking for. You can search by keyword, title, author, or subject heading.

Next best is to browse the area of the P ranges that interest you. Click here to see how the P ranges are organized; then you can go to an area of interest in the Addlestone book stacks and browse the shelves there.
