The Jungle Book and other "Juvenile" books

One of us was asked last night if we have The Jungle Book, by Rudyard Kipling. We do, in several editions, and like all our books, it was easily found in our catalog. The only tricky part is that this book is in a group we call our "Juvenile" collection. This collection is quite large actually, totaling just over 18,000 items. It includes children's to young adult fiction and non-fiction, a handy collection of K-12 textbooks used in NY schools, and also some videos, CDs, models and more!

You can find the Juvenile Collection on the ground floor of the library, in the corner area where the copiers and quiet study room are located. There is a guide to the Juvenile Collection and its resources that you might like to make use of as well.
