Faye A. Collicot Children's Room

The Children's Room is on the first floor and contains the library's collection of children's books.

What do we have in our collection?

Our collection includes hundreds of children's books including:

  • Non-Fiction Books
  • Fables and Folktales (j398)
  • Fiction Books
  • Reference Materials on Juvenile Literature
  • Picture Books

We also have a collection of autographed books, although they can't be borrowed.

How long can I borrow children's books?

You can check out children's books for 14 days. They can be renewed for 14 more days, but will be subject to recall.

How are the books in the children's room sorted?

When you browse the children's books please keep in mind that the books are sorted accordingly:

  • Non-Fiction books are sorted using the Dewey Decimal System
  • Fiction books are sorted alphabetically by author
  • Picture books (jP) are sorted alphabetically by author in their own section
