Giant Print books for ages 12 to young adult (Word 117kb)

    RNIB Giant Print Library (12 years to young adult)

    Titles updated January 2009

Welcome

    RNIB National Library Service boasts the UK’s first lending service of Giant Print books thanks to funding generously provided by The Wolfson Foundation, Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales, The John Ellerman Foundation, Vision Charity, The Sobell Foundation, The Sandra Charitable Trust, Abbey Charitable Trust, CHK Charities Limited, The Albert Hunt Trust, Good Neighbours Trust and The Big Lottery Fund and many others.

    Produced mainly by the National Blind Children’s Society, the books are set in 24 point type with covers identical to their counterparts in the ordinary print versions of the books available in bookshops and public libraries.

    The books were originally aimed at children and teenagers with many of the books undoubtedly appealing to adults too. However, the collection is now expanding to the adult age range in its own right (for a separate list of adult’s titles, please contact us on 0161-

    406-2525).

    The collection now also includes some Livewire titles, which are from a range of reading material with a teenage/adult reading interest level for those with reading ages below 10.

    Any UK member of our library service may borrow the Giant Print books. The only limitations at present are that each member is offered a maximum of 6 books per service, and that the books are available to UK members only, although it is possible that these circumstances may be reviewed in the future.

    The books listed in this catalogue are currently part of library stock, and as more titles are added, this list will be updated. The numbers shown in brackets after some titles depict the sequel order of books in a specific series.

    Finally, please be aware that due to their size, many of the books are split into two or more volumes, and these will have identical

    covers. People often think that we have sent multiple copies of the same book, but this is not the case!

    For details of joining the RNIB National Library Service, or for further information regarding the Giant Print collection, please contact Liz on 0161 355 2061 or Megan on 0161 355 2064.

We hope you enjoy our unique new Giant Print Library.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Please note:

    Due to the demand and the limitations of our Giant Print books, readers are allowed:

    ? a maximum of six Giant Print titles out on loan at any one time. ? a loan period of 3 months

    ? limited renewals, and dependant on whether other readers have

    reserved a specific title

    Please be aware that it is possible to join an individual child but still have the books sent to his or her school address (the “second address” on the membership application form).

    If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Liz on 0161 355 2061, or Megan on 0161 355 2064. Thank you for your co-operation.
