Youth Collection

The Youth Collection, designed for the adult study of children's and young adult literature, contains more than 20,000 trade books, related reference sources, and a growing number of materials in electronic formats. Although a small historical collection is maintained, the focus of the Youth Collection is on recently published materials representing many genres, curriculum areas, and grades PK-12.

Staff are responsible for development of children’s/young adult materials, providing reference service for patrons using those materials, providing bibliographic instruction for patrons using those materials, maintaining and evaluating the collection, and serving as a professional resource for Iowa educators.
