Summer programs for children

Preschool storytimes are over for the spring. There won't be any programs in May as libraries get ready for summer programs.

Libraries have planned programs for school age children that include stories, activities, performers, and of course, books.

Check with your library for a schedule or look at our online event page.

Large print

Whether you admit it or not, some of us need large print materials to enjoyably read a book.

According to Lighthouse International (a nonprofit which works to preserve vision and help people overcome challenges of vision loss) by the year 2010, twenty million people aged 45 and older will report some form of vision impairment.

Each library has a nice collection of large print books for adults. All genres of fiction are included and there is also non fiction.

The Cooperative received a grant on behalf of the libraries from the FL State Legislature for purchase of large print materials. You'll start to see more large print books in each library.
