Collection Development - Board Books

20. Board Books

Board books, small, sturdy books aimed at babies and toddlers, are housed in special board book bins in the children's areas of the library facilities. In addition to durable cardboard pages, most board books address simple concepts such as colors, shapes, letters and counting.

Because of their fragile nature, toy books such as pop-up books, lift-the-flap books, books with moving parts, and/or cloth books are not generally purchased for the Picture Book or Board Book collections.
