Juvenile Collection

The Juvenile collection consists of print materials for children and young adults and serves primarily to meet the instructional needs of undergraduate and graduate students, especially those in the teacher education program.

Included in the collection are fiction and non-fiction titles for pre-K through twelfth grade. Special emphasis is placed on acquiring subject-specific literature and outstanding examples of each genre and subject area. Notable award books, such as winners and honorable mention titles of the Caldecott, Newbery, and Coretta Scott King awards are purchased each year when funds are available.

Fiction selections include literature, novels, junior novels, poetry, and drama. Non-fiction works are acquired selectively, with the intention of providing representative works in a variety of subject areas.

Picture books, wordless books, alphabet books, counting books, Mother Goose, nursery rhymes, and folklore are included in the Juvenile collection.

The Juvenile collection is located on the second floor of the Pace Library.
