Our books can be found in different sections around the CIC. Our sections include: Animals, Biographies, Countries and Civilizations, Fine Arts and Folktales, Graphic Novels, Health, Holidays, India, Lower Elementary Fiction, Novels (organized by genre), Oral Recordings, Picture Books, Poetry, Science, and World Languages. Each section is color coded and clearly marked to help students find books more easily.
