Juvenile Collection Big Books

Juvenile Collection: Big Books

Juvenile Big Books are located with the children's book collection, directly across from the activity and curriculum textbook collection stacks - next to the book kits. This collection is cataloged and shelved numerically with a call number beginning bigbk followed by a number; the newest title has the highest number.

Big books are housed in large hanging bags, both bag and book should be taken to the circulation desk. Big Books are part of the circulating collection.

Big Books in the Catalog

When searching the catalog, you may notice some big book titles have an accompanying audio book or picture book. For example, BigBk 038, Old MacDonald Had a Farm; it includes big book 038 and audio book 0151, a picture book in paperback and audio tape. Both items are available for check-out!

Audio Books are located inside the IRC - and we have cassette players (really!) if you want to listen to the book. Ask in the IRC if you need help locating an audio book.

Big Book Stands

Trouble holding a big book during storytime or lessons? There are two big book stands / easels (Kit 349) available for check out.
