Our Large Print Collection consists of a combination of fiction and non-fiction books owned by the Petawawa Public Library and those borrowed from a rotating pool of books from the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS).
Books from the SOLS pool are exchanged 3 times a year for 50 new titles, so keep checking the Large Print Shelf for the current rotation. Don't forget to browse our New Books for new large print titles as they are added. Look for the the Yellow LP stickers on the book spines.
Readers of Large Print may also be interested in our Audiobook Collection.
The Library is also a member of CELA, the Centre for Equitable Library Access. Use your library card number to register online for CELA and access to its growing collection of 100,000 items, which include newspapers, magazines, described videos and books in accessible formats such as audio, e-text and braille.
Through CELA, you will also have access to Bookshare, a US-based accessible online library for people with print disabilities. For more information or help registering for CELA and Bookshare, call the library at 613-687-2227 ext. 0.
