National Library Week: Spotlight on Books for Kids and Teens

This post was part of a series for National Library Week 2015 and some information may be outdated. Questions? Please reach out to us online or at the Information Desk. 

The Curriculum Materials Collection (or CMC) is a collection of children’s and YA literature that is located on the 2nd floor of the library (to the right of the Tech on 2 desk). The CMC mimics real school libraries by dividing the children’s literature section by reading levels, fiction and non fiction. Each different reading level in fiction is assigned a color dot and nonfiction is organized by Dewey Call Number (as opposed to Library of Congress Classification which is used in the rest of the library).

In this collection you will find…

and Non Fiction Books too!
