Tradebook Examination Center

The Children's Tradebook Examination Center, founded by Dr. Jane Bingham, is comprised of current, newly published children's books supplied by publishers and arranged alphabetically by publisher. As a new year begins, books from the previous year are integrated into the ERL's main circulating collections.

We are proud of our partnership with leading publishers, enabling us to share the newest and often best books published for children and young adults across genres and curriculum areas with our pre-service educators and counselors. Books in the Tradebook Examination Center may be checked out for a one-week period or browsed in the ERL by patrons.

Through the continued generosity of our participating publishers, we have the ongoing means to update and maintain our established circulating and award books collections. Our Tradebook Examination Center provides an invaluable resource for our students, and for teachers and librarians from the surrounding school districts, as they think about choosing books for teaching, read aloud assignments and building their own classroom library.
The Tradebook Examination Center is located straight inside the ERL, on the bookcases just past the circulation desk.
