Have you ever needed a magazine article for your school report? You should use our Children’s Magazine Guide. This is a subject index to children’s magazines and websites. For example, if you want a magazine article about marine life, look in the Children’s Magazine Guide in the Msection and find names of articles, the magazines where the articles are located, the date of the issue where the articles are located, and the page number. You can always ask a children’s librarian for help using this magazine guide.
We have something for everyone.
