Q. Graphic novels in my library are in constant circulation. How do I help my young readers, all of varying ages and maturity levels, get their hands on age-appropriate graphic novels?
Looking at the LC classification number is a good start. More "mature" teen graphic novels (upper high school level) are classed with adult graphic novels in PN6700-6790. Many such works are rated as "Ages 16+." The call number PZ7.7 is used on graphic novels intended for readers up through age 15. Note that PZ7.7 has only existed since 2007. Older graphic novels for children and young adults may be found in PN.
