The Children's and Young Adult Collection in Norlin Library is a small teaching and browsing collection of up to 5,000 materials that support students in the School of Education and also children and young adults in the CU and wider Boulder communities. We focus on collecting major award winning titles and purchase additional fiction and non-fiction materials to support the focuses of the School of Education, including books with racial and ethnic diversity, diverse gender and sexuality, disabilities or exceptionalities, and science and math books. Additional materials are housed in PASCAL, our off-site storage facility in Denver. They can be requested through our library catalog.
Boulder Valley School District Educators and K-12 students from local publicly-funded schools are able to create free accounts to borrow materials in this collection and the rest of Norlin Library!
We need diverse books! CU affiliates are invited to recommend diverse titles for the Children's and Young Adult Collection.
CU Boulder's School of Education and the Boulder Book Store invite teachers, students, families, librarians, and all who enjoy children’s literature to join us for free events! See the festival schedule on the Children's Book Festival website.
Open education resources for these books created by School of Education students available for free download (e.g., resources from past festivals include author slide shows, book discussion guides, digital book trailers and class projects)
