Children's Literature at J.A. Jones Library

Books for grades K-5

In our CMC JUV section (otherwise known as the "children's section"), the books for elementary school students are marked with yellow stickers on their spines. These are typically the books for early readers, short chapter books, and slightly longer chapter books for older elementary school students. Not sure of a book's placement? Just ask! Do we have something in the wrong section? Let us know!
