Were you aware that the Lincoln Public Library has a great young adult collection of both fiction and non-fiction offerrings? It is located across the aisle from the juvenile section on the short bookcases in the adult section.
Why there? Because the books located in Young Adult are for the more mature readers, readers that are beyond the juvenile section in their tastes, but not quite ready to venture into adult material. They may contain subject matter or vocabulary for readers in middle school or high school. This is the section you would browse for materials on teen dating, the steroid controversy in sports, or a teen issues novel, etc. It is, of course, not closed to juvenile readers, but we wish to designate that this section may contain books that young readers may not have the maturity to understand.
Just don't let the title "Young Adult" fool you. Many adults can and do find themselves wandering by these shelves and choosing a book of interest. It also is home to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series!
