The Education Library houses a carefully curated children’s and juvenile literature collection, an extensive academic collection, and specialized craft and counseling materials in support of student teachers.

Juvenile Collection

Our children's and juvenile literature collection contains materials for all ages and reading levels, from beginning reader books to young adult titles.

Strengths of the collection include thoughtfully-selected materials that focus on identity, social development, and personhood, and feature characters from under-represented groups; an extensive assortment of Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics titles; and a growing collection of books in languages from around the world.

Our labeling system will help you locate books according to learning outcome (letters, colors, and shapes), subject matter (sports, holidays, historical fiction, and fairy tales), and social development objective (family, emotions, identity, and social issues), among many other categories. 

We also boast a substantial collection that supports Social Emotional Learning, with materials for children as well as teachers, counselors, and other practitioners, and we collect extensively across topical categories touching on contemporary pedagogical currents and social issues.

Academic Collection

The Education Library also holds materials supporting undergraduate and graduate study in the College of Education, with titles touching on subjects across the educational spectrum, from policy and school counseling to curriculum and teacher development. Stop by to see our monthly thematic displays, in which we highlight materials related to classroom development and social issues in the classroom.

The Butler Education Studio, located in the Education Library, provides space and resources to all UK Libraries users, offering access to free paper and craft materials, laminators, Cricut and AccuCut machines, and a button maker. The Education Library is also equipped with a 3D printer.
