Former Juvenile Collection moves from Reserve to third floor
Amelia Bedelia, Babar, Paddington Bear and Dr. Seuss have a new home in Hodges Library. The Children’s and Young Adult Collection, formerly known as the Juvenile Collection, is now located in the northwest corner of the third floor.
The Children’s and Young Adult Collection has approximately 20,000 titles, with about 2/3 fiction and 1/3 non-fiction. The loan period for books in this collection has also been extended, from seven days to 28 days.
The Children’s and Young Adult Collection at the UT Libraries supplements the university’s Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature. The center is dedicated to promoting the use of literature in the education and lives of children and young adults. The center also provides an outreach program that serves the community with both educational workshops and entertaining events.
