Searching Library Search for Children's Books

The best place to start searching for Children's books is in the Library Collection.

We suggest you start with a Keyword search in Library Search

Using the Location Facet in combination with  a subject or a resource type is very effective. 

Adding the word Juvenile to a search term will also bring children's literature to the top.   This is particularly effective when searching beyond our library collections. 

** When searching for a particular book, placing the title in quotes can help.

If you are looking for Chapter Books  use the term "chapter book juvenile fiction"  and limit to the level under the Location Facet
