Children's Books

Children's literature is shelved on the main floor next to the tall Reference shelves.

All children's literature books have JUV LIT before the call number.

Call numbers for American and English children's fiction are:

PZ6 -- Early to 1860 or 1870

PZ7 -- General after 1870

PZ8 -- Fairy tales

PZ10.3 -- Animal stories

Non-fiction children's books are shelved on the same shelves, but are classed by their subject area.
