Your library's picture book collections are now organized into Picture Book Neighborhoods. If you're looking for books about cars, trucks, boats, etc, you'll find them all together in the Things that Go neighborhood with a red spine label. Books with yellow spine labels are Concept books. They're all about letters, numbers, opposites, and other basic concepts. Other neighborhoods are:
- Favorites - Where you'll find so many favorite authors and characters
- Festive - Birthdays and celebrations, parades and festivities
- Growing Up - First day of school, bedtime, bereavement, divorce, new baby, potty training, etc
- Nature - Seasons, trees, animals, pets, and other nature related themes
- Our Town - Farm market, dog park, stores, libraries, community helpers and more
- Rhymes and Songs - Mother Goose and more plus favorite songs old and new
- Stories - Dinosaurs, princesses, pirates, and so many more
Come visit our neighborhoods at any Kalamazoo Public Library location!
