Library Corner

Boulder City Library

Youth Library
The entire northwest corner of the Boulder City Library is devoted entirely to our “Youth Library”, offering materials for children of all ages. However, children grow, learn and change at such an amazing rate! How do you pick the right book?

The Youth Library is further divided into sections of books for different ages. The spine label on the book will offer a clue for you to help match up books with the appropriate reading level.
However, the best judge of what your child can handle is YOU.

Board = Board Book. These books are aimed at our youngest patrons, and are generally printed on heavier cardboard stock to help them withstand the use of those little hands and mouths.
P = Easy Picture Books. These books are wonderful for sharing with toddlers all the way up through kids in the 5th grade.
K-1 = A section of early readers aimed at helping the newest readers in Kindergarten and 1st grade develop their new skills.
2-3 = Early chapter books for youth in grades 2 and 3.
J = Juvenile Fiction. Story books aimed at ages 8-13.
JGN = Juvenile Graphic Novels. Some people call these “comic books” but they are more sophisticated than the comics of my youth. Ages 8-13.
J & YA Bio = Biography titles for ages 8-21.
J & YA NF = Information books for ages 8-21.
YA = Young Adult story books for ages 14-21. Some of these books may possibly address sensitive issues and older ideas. They usually contain some advanced vocabulary.
YA GN = Young Adult Graphic Novels. Ages 14-21. Stories are told in a format similar to comic books.

We also offer magazines for young readers and a collection of books for Parents and Teachers.

For advice in choosing reading materials for younger readers, please ask for help from a Librarian at one of our Reference Desks.
