Whether your child wants to read about dinosaurs, fairies, pirates, bugs or space, the library holds the key to countless adventures. Many of these wonderful resources can be found in our Juvenile Non-fiction section. Next time you’re in the library, check out the JNF section and get ready to explore!
You may have noticed some shelving changes at the Claycomo Branch. Previously, all the non-fiction books had been shelved together. We are now in the process of separating the juvenile non-fiction to allow them an area by themselves over by the juvenile chapter books (of course, adults can still check them out!). This will make them more accessible to the young people that come to the library and easier to find. However, there may be some confusion while we are making the changes. So if you can’t find your favorite non-fiction book, let us know and we’ll help you find it.
Picture books are fantastic for the preschool crowd. However, just like adults sometimes thirst for factual information, kids are eager to know about the real world, too. We have a whole section that is perfect for them—juvenile non-fiction.
Admit it: Sometimes, you get tired of reading adult books. Sometimes, you get tired of the drama and suspense, the family meltdowns and illicit affairs, the drugs, sex, and rock-n-roll. Sometimes, you long to curl up with an old friend like Ramona Quimby or Encyclopedia Brown, and just escape into a world of sixth-grade crushes and hilarity-filled summer vacations. I know because I, too, am an adult who wants to read kid’s books. My advice to you: Go for it. There are tons of reasons adults should read kid’s books. Here are seven of them.
