Children's Literature Collection at Evans Library

The Curriculum Collection is a special collection of materials and resources that can be used to support PK-12 curriculum objectives. The collection is divided into two main sections: the Textbook Collection and the Literature Collection. Children's literature titles will be located in the Literature Collection.

The Literature Collection consists of K-12 reading materials, both fiction and nonfiction, that support curriculum objectives and promote individual reading interests. The collection contains award-winning children's literature and some foreign language reading materials. Books for all ages are intershelved within the collection.

The Curriculum Collection is located on the fourth floor of Evans Library near the skywalk to the Annex.
