Finding Non-Fiction Materials
Are your students looking for non-fiction materials for their research assignment? We’ve identified books that are perfect for Central School research projects and made them easy to find. When you browse the library shelves, look for big, bright-red YA labels on books in both the adult and children’s nonfiction collections. This label tells you that the book is written at a level of vocabulary and detail that should work for you.
