When bigger can be better

Large print image with magnifying glass on pageMaybe it's just me, but sometimes, the print in a mass-market paperback seems a bit tiny (it's usually font size 10).  If you've had an experience like this with a book, consider trying a large-print selection.  Large-print books have a font that is at least 18 point in size and can be handy for those readers who need a break from tiny print, have tired eyes, or some vision impairment.  Large-print books can also be a wonderful to read on a treadmill or stationary bike!  

We have a great selection of large-print books in the Library. From all fiction genres to memoirs to general nonfiction, we offer readers a wide range of titles to choose from. In the catalog, this format shows up like this: Large Print icon Here's an example: A Friend of Mr. Lincoln  (note the Large Print notation when you click on this title).  

We're happy to help you search the catalog, or show you our large-print sections if you'd like to browse! And, as always, if you don't see a particular title, please ask!
