With a focus primarily in history, the P.K. Yonge Library does not collect extensively in fiction. However, holdings do include a representative sample of Florida authors and literature about Florida; this consists of approximately 500 titles.
Researchers should be aware that, in addition
to the limited resources in P.K. Yonge, the Department of Special Collections
does have a major children's literature collection, the Baldwin Library,
and also curates manuscripts and papers of several important Florida authors,
including Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Zora Neale Hurston, and John D. MacDonald.
