Children's and Young Adult Literature

Your CECH Library guide to support the study of children's and young adult literature.

Introduction to Children's and Young Adult Literature

The children's and young adult collections in CECH Library consist of fiction and non-fiction titles.

Fiction holdings are classified into sub-sections including:

  • Easy picture books
  • Juvenile fiction
  • Young adult fiction
  • Graphic novels
  • Board books
  • Big books

Non-fiction holdings are divided into two sub-sections, with biographies separated from the general non-fiction section. 

The CECH Library is the proud home of the Kretschmer Collection of Native American Children’s Literature, a unique special collection of children’s and young adult literature titles written and/or illustrated by Native Americans. The Mary Louise Schroth Charitable Trust has also funded the purchase of more than 2,500 children’s and young adult books in these collections.
