Reading LARGE

The Urbana Free Library offers an intriguing collection of books printed in larger font sizes. Enjoy recent bestsellers, old classic friends, selected teen titles, and a broad variety of fiction and non-fiction titles.

If you have difficulty reading volumes with standard size type, or, are interested in a different reading option, or like me, just relish reading every once and a while sans glasses, you will find something just for you in our large print books.

Our large print books are located on the west end of first floor, just before the start of the mystery hardcovers. Stop by the InfoDesk and we’ll be happy to introduce you to the collection.

If you'd like us to request or hold certain titles for you, contact us in Adult Services by phone (217) 367-4405 or email.

Here’s just a sample of new titles we’ve recently added to our large print collection:

The Map of Heaven book cover   A Man Called Ove book cover  Woman of Courage book cover

The Royal We book cover  Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children book cover  The Martian book cover
