Juvenile Books: Big Books

Over the last few weeks, several collections have been 'shifted' on the library second floor to facilitate an increased space for the juvenile collection. Curriculum textbooks, activity books, big books, leveled book kits, and the Newbery and Caldecott award sections all remain on the second floor, but they have slightly different locations.  If you are unfamiliar with the IRC's Juvenile Big Book collection, this short video features information about big books. Don't forget, you can check out big book stands from the materials kit collection, too!




In case you missed it, pictures of the updated layout and a collection of IRC Voki and Gami tours are available on the IRC Pinterest site.
