Big is beautiful!

Do you have a struggling reader? Then try one of our LARGE print books! Sometimes all that small print can be a turn off for a struggling reader, they feel like they'll never get to the end of the page! Think of tax forms and legal documents, all that fine print can a big turnoff for adults, the same is true for some kids. According to the April 2007 School Library Journal, "the use of large print may unconsciously help students return to their earlier learning experiences, when they perceived reading as easier and more enjoyable." Some of our LARGE print books are on display in the Youth Services Department so please check them out. If you're looking for a particular book in large print, any reference librarian can help you.
