Special Collection: Children's Literature

Some of the library's children's and young adult (YA) books are in the Curriculum Collection, but most are in the Children's Literature collection located in the "Kuiper Reading Room" (the SW corner of the 5th floor). The collection contains an extensive selection of children's picture books, chapter books, and YA novels. (For more on searching for books in this collection, see our Find Books page in this guide.)
