Juvenile Collection

Harvey Library’s Juvenile Collection is a selection of books written at reading levels from beginner through young- adult. This collection is intended for the use of students and faculty in Hampton University’s Department of Education. In building this collection, an emphasis has been placed on cultural diversity.

The collection includes both fiction and nonfiction and offers many Newberry, Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, and other award winners. The presence of older as well as newer books in the collection makes possible diachronic studies of children’s literature.

The Juvenile Collection is located on the second floor of the Harvey Library. Its contents are arranged using the Library of Congress classification system.
