Canadian Children's Book Centre Reference Collection

Elizabeth Dafoe Library is host to one of five Canadian Children's Book Centre regional collections. The CCBC collection includes nearly every Canadian children’s book published since 1976. It is a non-circulating collection but students are welcome to use the materials in the library. Additional copies of many of the CCBC books are also available to be withdrawn from the Teaching Materials collection. Faculty of Education professors and instructors may borrow CCBC materials with permission from the Education Librarian.
