The Sharon Fogarty Young Readers' Collection contains fiction and non-fiction juvenile literature ranging from pre-school through young adult levels. The Dr. Karin J. Duran Curriculum Center Collection provides access to both print and non-print materials including a wide range of interactive educational toys, games, puppets, posters and learning resources to engage students of all grade levels within an elementary or secondary school classroom.
