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.
