Jody Thurston Northwest Center for Children’s Literature (JTNWCCL)
The NWCCL houses non-circulating preview copies of all children’s and young adult literature published in the past four years. During open hours or by appointment, the collection is available for preview and study to anyone—including parents, students, teachers, media specialists, librarians and others interested in providing quality literature to children and young adults.
The Center is a joint initiative of the Concordia College of Education and the University Libraries. It is funded by the University and by special donors who believe in the importance of quality literature in the lives of children.
