In the basement of Tribble Hall is a small collection of library materials, often described as a hidden gem, nestled among offices and classrooms. These books comprise the Joseph O. Milner Collection of Children’s Literature. The collection includes a diverse range of engaging literature for young readers— from preschool through young adult. Wake Forest University faculty and staff can check out these books for three months. You may even request delivery to your office through the ZSR Delivers service.

You can search the collection in the ZSR Library Catalog by title, or you can search by subject or keyword and limit your results to the location “Education Departmental Library” from the available search filters.

During the academic year, the Milner Collection library is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The library has reduced operating hours during the summer: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Remember that before we are readers, we are read to. Please enjoy sharing books from the Joseph O. Milner Collection with your young reader today!
