Children's Books in the CCBC Libraries

The libraries at CCBC collect children's books. We own most of the Caldecott and Newbery award winning books as well as other best selling children's books. We have picture books and young adult books too.

At the Catonsville campus library the children's collection is located near the Circulation Desk.

At the Dundalk campus library the children's books are shelved with the circulating books, mainly in the PZ call number.

At the  Essex campus library the picture book collection is on the second floor next to the stairs and the chapter books are shelved with the circulating books, mainly in the PZ call number.
