Finally! A YA Nonfiction Section!

It may be small, but we are finally creating a little young adult non-fiction section! (Currently YA nonfiction is either added to the children's section, or if not appropriate, added to the Adult nonfiction section with a YA sticker).
Obviously not everything you want to read in non-fiction will be there, but it will be a place for those books that are just right for teens and focus on subjects that you may be interested in.
So, to add to the books that we've taken out of Adult nonfiction, I ordered some great titles that come recommended by our Capitol Region Young Adult Roundtable members! Stop in and check them out!
