Audiobooks And Large Print Return To East Library

| No TrackBacks

talking books.jpgWhen we moved the East Library into our temporary location, we didn't anticipate having any room for audiobooks or large print books. However, so many people expressed interest in these collections that we've decided to bring them back. We won't have as many as we did at the old East, but we do have some exciting audiobooks at East, including Stephen King's Doctor Sleep, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and many more.
Expect these collections to grow slowly in the coming weeks as we add new items to the shelves. You can find the audiobooks next to the magazines, and the large print books next to the holds pick-up shelf. As always, if you can't find what you're looking for, our librarians will be happy to help!
