Getting started with your own search!

While finding books to explore ideas with children can sometimes resemble the activity of searching for a needle in a haystack, there are a couple of ways to make your life easier.  Within the library's catalogue, each book is assigned subject headings that try to capture the major themes of the book.  In most cases the kinds of books you will want to find have the subject heading "juvenile" in common.  Even if this sounds a little strange, it works!

Your can add descriptive words, such as "dyslexia" to pinpoint your search.  The illustration below will help guide your search.

Because our collection in this area is relatively compact, it is also useful to simply visit the shelves to see what's there.  You may be pleasantly surprised!

 

And here they are!
