The TCMC K-12 Textbook Collection on the 3rd Floor of the Library also houses some juvenile titles, primarily in the subject areas for Language Arts.  These items are included in the online catalog and will indicate on their catalog record that they are part of the TCMC K-12 Textbook Collection.

The newest addition to juvenile material is the small, core RRC Juvenile Collection.  Students at RRC who need books only available from the Alkek Juvenile Collection or TCMC can submit an Alkek Library-RRC Document Delivery request and main campus students can submit an RRC-to-Alkek Library Document Delivery request.
