Oversized Materials


Oversized books are too big for the standard shelves. If your call number begins with OVR look for the book by its LC call number on the Oversize shelves. 


Juvenile and Young Adult Books

STL has a growing collection of books for emergent readers through young adults.  

This collection is located between the Oversize collection and the elevator.

  • This collection also uses the LC call number system. To find the call number for your book, use the library's catalog.
  • Children's (JUV) and Young Adult (YOUNGA) books are interfiled in a single collection.

Quiet study rooms are found throughout the building. They require you to check out a key at the Checkout Desk.
