You have access to a special library catalog created specifically for school-age kids. Young people can quickly find the items they are interested in by using this friendly, powerful catalog.
This catalog includes books, CDs, DVDs and other materials that are tagged "target audience = juvenile " in the cataloging record. This helps focus the results to items of more appropriate reading levels.
Look for buttons and links for categories of commonly requested topics, such as countries and states, animals, historical persons, astronomy and other sciences, along with sports, holidays and other fun topics.
Kids can enter their own terms and search the catalog for these words - in titles, author names, subjects, series names, or anywhere in the bibliographic record.
Limit your search by choosing either "Fiction" (stories) or "Nonfiction" (informational or true) buttons at the far right below the search box.
Place a hold and have an item sent to your local library using the Get This for Me link.
We designed the catalog for elementary kids, but adults and parents can put it to good use when looking for children's items. It searches the same books, CDs, DVDs and other materials as our full catalog, but limits displayed results to materials tagged as "juvenile".
