Large Print books are printed with a larger font size to make it easier to read if you have weak eyesight. The content of the Large Print and regular print books are the same, but there are usually more pages in a Large Print book to accommodate for the larger type-size.

If you prefer to read Large Print books, you can limit your results to Large Print-only in the library catalog. After searching for a book filter by Large Print on the right. Or click Advanced Search and use the Format drop-down to select Large Print.

Large Print titles, at top, make it a little easier on the eyes for many readers. However they require more pages so they can be heavier.

Also, eBooks offer scalable font sizes. Richland Library card holders may borrow eBooks through the Libby and Hoopla collections and adjust the font size, background colors, line spacing, and contrast levels to assist in your reading comfort.
