Revised August 2012
Campbell County Public Library develops the Young Adult nonfiction collection
for readers including and between the ages of twelve to fifteen years.
The purpose of this collection is to provide nonfiction information of
interest to young adults. This collection serves as a bridge from the
Children's nonfiction collection to the Adult nonfiction collection. In
almost all areas, the Young Adult nonfiction collection is dependent upon
the more comprehensive coverage of the Adult nonfiction collection. The
development of this collection is greatly limited by budget constraints and space limitations;
however, effort is made to maintain a balance between report materials
and recreational subjects. The collection is separate from the adult nonfiction collection and housed near the teen room.
