YA know?

Materials for teenagers, or young adults, are labeled YA in the "call number" (located on the spine label ). These YA titles should appeal to or are written for students in grades 7 through 12. Fiction, graphic novels (YAGN), and magazines are shelved in the Y.A.R.D., while nonfiction (books and audiobooks) are shelved with adult materials on the Lower Level.


Hang out at the Young Adult Reading Digs, located on the upper level, where you'll find comfy chairs, graphic novels, and fiction that speaks to teens. Just look for the neon sign.
