Press ReleaseNew Large Print Children’s Book Collection Available at the Iowa City Public Library

The Iowa City Public Library is pleased to announce a collection of large print children’s books is now available for check out. Made possible through a generous grant from the Pilot Club of Iowa City, the collection contains over 120 fiction and nonfiction titles, including Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Jason Reynold’s Ghost and Louise Erdrich’s The Birchback House.

Including large print books in the Library’s children’s collection provides more options for our youngest patrons to engage with books. Research shows children with visual challenges, learning differences or difficulties and reading comprehension challenges can benefit from large print texts.

Large Print Children’s Books and more are available in the Ellen Buchanan Children’s Room at the Iowa City Public Library. Large Print Children’s Books check out for three weeks and no fines are assessed on materials in this collection.
