Yes. The children's books are shelved in the Juvenile Collection on the second floor of the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons.

The Juvenile Collection includes picture books, easy books, biographies, series, fiction, and non-fiction for preschool to grade 12. This collection is shelved according to the Dewey Decimal system.

Use the following steps to search for juvenile books, e-books, and more:    

  • Go to the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons home page.
  • Locate the Search WorldCat Discovery box in the center of the home page.
  • Type your key words, book title, author name, or ISBN in the search box, then click Search.
  • Browse the search results list. Records for available items will indicate Held by: Kean University Nancy Thompson Library and will indicate access options, including the ones listed below:
    • Available Kean University Nancy Thompson Library - Juvenile Collection (print book – note Call Number)
    • Access Online (eBook)
  • When you click Access Online while off-campus (and sometimes while on-campus), you will need to login (when prompted) with your Kean Google email username and password.
  • WorldCat Discovery search results typically default to items available through Kean University Nancy Thompson Library. However, you may open up your search to items held by other libraries by clicking the checkbox next to Libraries Worldwide. If you are interested in accessing any of these non-Kean items, click the item’s title, click the Request Item through Interlibrary Loan button, then fill out and submit the form.
