Children's Literature at J.A. Jones Library

Books for high school and beyond!

In our CMC JUV section (otherwise known as the "children's section"), the books for teens and young adults are marked with green stickers on their spines. These are typically the books for students and young adults who are ready for more mature content and complex concepts. Not sure of a book's placement? Just ask! Do we have something in the wrong section? Let us know!

Please note: Some of the most popular YA fiction will be found in our Recreational Reading section. That's just across the room from the Children's Section!
