Welcome! IEC Resources

This guide is a collection of resources designed to meet the developing information needs of students on the path to becoming Early Childhood Educators. This guide is not intended to be definitive, rather it is intended to promote an understanding of the types of resources that are available to educators.


The Downtown library has a book collection to support early childhood education classes. It is on the second floor near the main books stacks.

This collection consists of a variety of children's books including picture books, books on numbers, science, history, and biography written for the pre-k to first grade. We offer a selection of Caldecott and Newberry Award books from the earliest years of the award to the present. To support students in the program there are books on lesson plans, creating classrooms, and general information to support work in the early childhood education field. 

If you want a particular book and know the author or title you can search Primo, the library's catalog online, to find a book in the collection.
