Infant Through Grade 12 Resources: Home

Collections for those working with children and youth.
Welcome to IG12!  Here you will find, books, materials, games, and kits for infants through grade 12. We also have a variety of teacher's resources such as curriculum guides, kits, puppets, and a selection of textbooks. 
While we are here to provide resources for future educators and youth service providers; we are always delighted to have anyone in our space who wants to check out a good book! We have many new and popular YA novels to choose from as well as a multitude of picture and chapter books for young ones. We often have students, faculty, and staff who bring in children to find books and other materials and we are always happy to make reading suggestions.
