Children's Literature Collection

Browse collection

The USF Libraries growing Children’s and Young Adult Literature Collections currently include over 25,000 titles of American fiction for adolescent and young readers, dating from 1870 to the present. They provide researchers, teachers, students, and readers the opportunity to study the evolving culture and sociology of American adolescence through the literature written for them.

This digital collection of children’s literature from USF’s Special Collections is just the tip of the iceberg, featuring boys and girls series books from before 1923. This is a growing collection, and more titles will be added over time.
