Children's Lit: Home

This guide will cover the library's collection of children's non-fiction and fiction.

Where are the books?

Our Children's Collection (non-fiction, including poetry and fairy tales) and Children's Fiction books are located in an alcove on the second floor.  

Children's Collection books begin outside the alcove and are shelved according to Library of Congress subject classification.  

Children's Fiction books begin after Children's Collection and are shelved by author (first five letter of author's last name, first five letters of author's first name, first five letters of the book title).  

For example, Brian Selznick's Wonderstruck's call number is Selzn Brian Wonde.
