How the Wellesley Free Library handles Young Adult and Youth Fiction

A few weeks ago, the New York Times Book Review changed its list of Young Adult Best Sellers to more accurately reflect the landscape of Young Adult Literature.  The list now separates out “Middle Grade” Literature and “Young Adult”

We here at the Wellesley Free Library have been at the practice of separating Young Adult and Youth Books. 


Our Youth Books are located in the Quigley Youth Room, on the first floor of the library, within the Children’s Room.

Young Adult:

Our Young Adult books are those books that focus on high school and “older” issues and often center around a character that can be classified as a “Young Adult.” Our Young Adult books are located on the second floor, to the left of reference desk, next to the Graphic Novels and Science Fiction sections.
