Youth collections

As a young adult, you’re growing more confident in your reading and language skills and you will be seeking out new genres and mediums. You probably love to read about the world you live in, about people your own age, and about other times, places and cultures.

You and your peers prefer many different styles and formats in reading materials and to engage you, we provide diverse and eclectic collections so you can dive in at your own pace.

The library’s extensive youth collection includes:

  • VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) collection
  • zines
  • YA Non Fiction, grouped by category
  • magazines, graphic novels

You can also find useful resources in our eCollections. For information designed to help you get started with eCollections, please visit our help guides.
