hmm most of the older teen books are or used to be before they moved the paperbacks, right next to the paperback. They are still there but there's like a reading section now so you can sit and read. The chairs were there before but I think they spread them out a bit when they moved the paperbacks. It's close to the audiobooks and large print books. I wouldn't have known they were there if I hadn't been at the paperbacks. They do have some in the kids room but that probably depends on the content of the books.

Hmm I'm not otally sure, but I think they are in the children's section. I'll have a look next time I'm there.

Both of our local public libraries have the juvenile non-fiction on the same floor as the all the other YA and younger books, videos, music, etc.. Both libraries have had it this way for as long as I know, and I've been going to one of them since I was 9yo.

Hmm I'm pretty sure that the library I used to go to in NY kept all the children's books in the children's section.

I live in a county where we have a main library and then most of the towns have a branch library, but they all keep the juvinile- nonfiction in the juvinile dept that is in the children's section of all the libraries.

Our library houses the children's non-fiction in the children's section. We used it a lot when the kids were young. A lot!

I was one of those adults who didn't mind checking out a kid's NF book for myself. When you just want the basics on a subject you know little about, JUV NF is the way to go.

I agree that children's non-fiction can come in handy when you just want/need a quick overview.

Another of the staff told me that not long after she started there, she had a patron walk out - he was insulted by the reasoning for them keeping the kids' books with the adult NF
