Our children's materials are a part of the Education Resource Collection housed in Room 301 of the TLC.The children's books are divided into fiction and non-fiction categories by grade level.  Each fiction and non-fiction grade level is color coded (see the chart below).  Fiction books are cataloged by author, and non-fiction books are cataloged using the Dewey Decimal System.

Every book has the appropriate color-coded band on the spine. 

Bin Books, Easy Readers and Big Books are all located in the cubbies on the left-hand side of the room.

Audio-visual materials are also included in the Education Resource Collection.
