Young Adult Nonfiction

YA nonfiction is shelved with adult nonfiction materials, as most adult nonfiction materials are also appropriate for this age group and are used for reference and homework help.  


eBooks & eMaterials

Many popular YA books and required school reading books are available through our eBook & eMaterials website.

Parental Guidance

Since the YA section covers those aged 12-18, and each child is at a unique developmental stage emotionally & physically, it is the responsiblity of the parent/guardian to determine what materials are appropriate for their child.   


If you are unsure of the materials your child has selected, please ask library staff or find more specific age recommendations at: 

Common Sense Media.
