Reasons to try Large Print books:

Over the past several years, we have worked to improve our Large Print books collection by adding new items on a regular basis and weeding out unused outdated titles. Conway and Madison libraries have excellent Large Print collections as well. Use our shared library catalog to search and place holds: We can also borrow Large Print books for you through interlibrary loan. Just ask us for the titles, authors, or genres you’d like to read.

The NH State Library’s Talking Books Services recently added a new selection of Large Print books which we can borrow for you. Browse the collection here. Contact us to request a title. 

If you or someone you know could use larger print than large print books offer, consider using NH Downloadable Books (set up an account with your library card), which allow for a range of text sizes and also allow options for optimizing display like reversing text (like white letters on a black background). Another option is signing up for the National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicapped Talking Books program via the State Library, which delivers audiobooks and a player to you through the mail (postage paid to and from!) as well as downloadable audiobooks through their BARD service. The Talking Books are for all ages. Parents or caregivers of children with reading disabilities can request this service and get age-appropriate materials. Library staff can now certify applications for these services, just ask.
