Welcome!

PreK-12 Children's Literature

Thanks for visiting the Children's Literature Subject Guide. The information contained on these pages is designed to assist you in finding children's literature resources for grades PreK-12.  If you have any questions about the content of this guide or if you need assistance - just ask!

Finding Books in the Catalog

Find books owned by the library through SuperSearch.

Go to the library's homepage and type your keyword or subject into the SuperSearch box. You can limit to books my expanding the "Source Type" limiter on the left-side of the screen and selecting "books". 

Children's books are located on the 4th floor of the library. These items are in Library of Congress order, just like the books upstairs.  This means that the books are not separated by reading level, or by whether they are fiction or non-fiction. 
 
We have fiction, non-fiction, award winners, and bestsellers.  We also have banned, challenged, and censored books.
 
If you need any help finding what you are looking for, or we don't have a title you think we should, please don't hesitate to talk to a member of the staff!

If we don't have it...

If you come across a book that we do not own, you can still order it for free through Prospector or InterlibraryLoan.

Interlibrary Loan
Request books, print and electronic articles, and more from libraries across the nation and throughout the world.

WorldCat
Request items via WorldCat, a global catalog containing books, video recordings, serials, and online materials from thousands of libraries worldwide.

Prospector
Prospector is currently unavailable while the CSU-Pueblo Library Catalog is replaced with a new system.

We estimate that Prospector will be available in Fall 2017. While Prospector is unavailable, CSU-Pueblo affiliates should use the alternate borrowing sources listed on this page.


Or, you could try the local public library. We are a branch of the public library and you can request to have items sent the CSU-Pueblo library for pick-up.
