Welcome to the Infant Through Grade 12 Resources Subject Guide!

Welcome to IG12!  We have children's books and a wide variety of teacher resources - including puppets and computer programs for kids! If you're looking for a good book to read, or need guidance with research, we can help with that, as well.
Our Mission: IG12 exists to provide resources and assistance in using these resources to children and young adults and those who are working or plan to work with these age groups.
Book Displays: Come in and check out our book displays - really! Our student workers base these on specific themes; we consider a display to be successful if book "walk off" the display!  If you see a title that looks interesting, nab it and take it downstairs to the Circulation desk to check it out!
