Finding Children's Books

Finding children's books at the Parkland Library.

Where We Put Children's Books

Children's books at Parkland are NOT all in one place!

  • Storybooks (Fiction) are in the PZ 7 call number area.
  • Nonfiction books will be throughout the library shelved with all books on the same topic. So children's music books are in the M call numbers, children's American history books will be in the E call numbers. It is difficult to "browse" for these books.

Use the catalog to find children's books. A simple keyword search that includes the world "juvenile" will find both fiction and nonfiction.

Catalog Searches to Try

It's Child's Play
