August 2017

More changes are happening at the library. Since we’ve gotten new permanent shelving, we decided to inter-mix hard cover regular print books with hard cover large print books. All of the large print books in the library have been marked with a large neon yellow dot. They will be easy to find. We did this because now there are fewer places to look for the books by a certain author. They’re either filed by hard cover or paperback. Also, many newer books are using larger, bolder print with more spacing. If you have a favorite author, you might find you can read a regular print book that’s filed with the large print books. Check it out!

Have you tried a book search on Do a little experimenting to see if we have a book you’re looking for. If you have any questions, we can help.
