Watzek Library maintains a small collection of children's and young adult (YA) literature in support of the Graduate School of Education curriculum as well as the recreational reading interests of students, staff, and faculty. It is located on the second floor of the building, in the gold zone room (also containing the A-D9999 call number range), situated behind the library's service desk.
The collection is organized in the Dewey Decimal System, which is often used in school and public libraries. Illustrated picture books (call numbers begin with the location code JUV PICTURE) are separated from YA fiction and nonfiction (call numbers begin with the location code JUV).
There are ten main Dewey Decimal call number classes:
Children's and YA literature is searchable in the library's Primo catalog, and will include titles available to borrow from other Summit libraries. Juvenile fiction and/or Juvenile works can be selected as a Genre filter in Primo, and Juvenile Lit. can be selected as a Location filter for materials specifically in Watzek Library's collection.
