The Curriculum Materials half of the Curriculum Materials Library, 207 Aderhold holds juvenile literature, from board books to Young Adult titles, textbooks, and other materials for classroom use in preschool to high school classes. Every effort is made to purchase textbooks in use in area schools to enable pre-service teachers the opportunity to prepare with materials actually in use.
In addition to textbooks, there is a sizeable media collection with nearly 1000 titles. These films may be checked out for use in the home or classroom.
Activity kits are also available and range from science experiments to fake food. Why would anyone have fake food? It's an excellent resource for nutrition classes! Puppets are another featured item available for use. Animals such as a barn owl, squirrel, bunny, fox, lion and elephant nestle next to a ballerina, cowgirl, and whole families. The puppets are a useful resource for counseling with young children, in addition to aiding in story time and so on.
There is also a reference collection of more than 100 titles. Increasingly titles are available as e-books, so be sure to check in GIL-FIND to discover useful materials that are not physically on the shelves.
The Juvenile Collection in the Curriculum Materials Library has materials for beginning readers and babies up to young adult titles. Titles include fiction and non-fiction and are arranged using Library of Congress call numbers. Increasingly, Spanish-language works are available.
