More about the Collection

The Children's Literature collection contains both children's fiction and some non-fiction. Biographies, collections of poetry, folk and fairy tales, and some science books are included. Also in the collection are most titles recognized with the ALA-sponsored Newbery, Caldecott, and Printz awards, and also for recent years, the titles on ALA's list of Notable Children's Books. Books about children's literature are shelved in the main collection. This collection is especially useful for students in elementary education.

Books from the Children's Literature collection may be borrowed for one week only.
