Juvenile (K-12) Collection: Welcome!

This is a help guide to orient you to the services and collections in the Juvenile collection.


The Juvenile Collection is located on the north side of Level 3 and is the only collection on that floor.  The books in this collection are arranged according to a locally modified version of the Dewey Decimal Classification system, with call numbers running from 001 (at the west end) through 999 (at the east end).  The principal local modification was the creation of the number 372.412 for children's picture books.  At that number you will find almost 10,000 picture books, in alphabetical order by author.  The Juvenile Collection has books for a wide variety of ages, from beginning readers through young adults (high school and beyond), fiction and non-fiction alike.  If you don't find what you're looking for, please contact Robert Behra or use the Suggest a Purchase form.
