The Juvenile and Young Adult Collection is located on the second floor in the southeast corner. It can be reached by either stairwell or by elevator.
This collection is available for everyone. Anyone with an ENMU ID card or a community borrower card can check out the materials.
Community borrower cards are free and allow users 16 years old and up to check out this collection. To obtain this card, go to the circulation desk on the main floor and fill out the community card application.
While most of the collection is written in English, there are books in other languages. We have books written in Spanish and Navajo and bilingual books in these and other languages.
These books can be located in the catalog by adding the language to your search. There is a sticker on many books identifying them as written in Espanol (Spanish) or Book Libro Bilingual.
The Search box enables you to search everything in the library at one time, including books, music, films, journal articles, eBooks, etc. To find materials in our juvenile or young adult collections limit the results list by Using the Filter By Location limiter on the left side of the page and choosing Juvenile or Young Adult.
It is possible to find materials by Lexile score, Accelerated Reader level, or grade level, though students should be aware that not every book in the collection has this information available and the scores are not always in the same format.
If you need any assistance in locating children's or young adult materials contact Susan Asplund to set up an appointment or use any of the reference services available.
The mission of the Golden Library Juvenile and Young Adult Collection is to support the success of Eastern New Mexico University's College of Education and College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences students, faculty, and staff by providing a highly curated selection of high-quality children's, middle grade, and young adult fiction and non-fiction.
The collection consists of modern materials as well as a collection of notable historic literature. This includes major award winners and the important works of notable authors and illustrators who significantly contributed to the fields of children's and young adult literature. For a wider selection of current materials and popular reading, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to utilize their public library.
