  • Young Adult: Fiction and nonfiction titles for young adults.
  • General Adult: General fiction and nonfiction.

How to choose your maturity level(s)

    Maturity levels settings
    For example, if you never wanted to see mature adult content, you would select Juvenile to General Adult. If you never wanted to see juvenile or young adult content, you would select General Adult to Mature Adult. If you want to see everything, keep Juvenile to Mature Adult selected.
  4. Select Save to save your maturity settings before you leave the page.

Your library may also allow you to hide adult cover images while you're browsing or searching your library's digital collection.

Note: Content in your library's digital collection will only be filtered based on your "Maturity level(s)" setting when you're signed into your library account.
