The majority of the Children's & Juvenile Literature Collection is located on the 3rd floor of the Newton Gresham Library, on the East side of the main staircase immediately adjacent to the Instructional Materials and K-12 Textbook Collections.
There is also a carpeted child-friendly reading area with soft seating next to the Picture Book section.
Call Number Structure: LS ... followed by initial letter of author's last name (ex: LS .A...)
Fiction is the first section in the collection when approaching from the main stairwell. Fiction titles are shelved by author's last name, with "LS" as the prefix. Reading and interest levels in this section range from 2nd grade through young adult.
NonFiction / Informational Texts

Picture books, both fictional and informational, reside in the two ranges (rows) of short shelving along the windows. The PB collection includes books suitable for lap-readers (including board books) through 2nd grade.
