Although the ULS is always the first place to check, and we do have many titles for children--fiction and non-fiction, picture book, graphic novel, chapter length, and more--as well as curriculum materials for teachers, with multiple students needing the same resources, there may be times when ULS items are unavailable.  If you're in Oakland, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (CLP), Main Library, is the closest public library.

Search the holdings for all CLP libraries and other public libraries in Allegheny County through their online catalog.  You'll have access to materials from participating EINetwork libraries.  The item you need might be available at the Main Library of CLP--just across the park from Hillman Library.  Or you may need to request something from another participating public library.

If your home address when you're not in school is within Allegheny County, your public library card should be valid at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.  If not, here's what to present to Get a Library Card. Click the link Information for University Students.

Not sure of the best way to gather the resources that you need?  Please contact Clare Withers, the Children's Literature Librarian.
