Picture Books Area: A New Look!

We’ve made some changes to the picture book section to make browsing for books easier. Now all the books in the section are classified by subject. Below is a primer on the categories you’ll find. You’ll also notice that each book has a corresponding label and all the categories are color-coded. As always, if you need help finding a book, don’t hesitate to ask a librarian. Happy browsing!
