Big Books

Big books are lightweight, softbound books that measure 16” x 20” or larger. They are colorfully illustrated, the print is large and they are designed for use in a group setting. Whether the audience is children or seniors, the books can be held up or placed on an easel so that the group can view the contents as the leader reads the story. Big books are great for story time or classroom use as well as for the individual reader who simply needs larger print and pictures to read a story.

Big books are listed in the Library’s online catalog . You can view titles by searching in 2 ways: 1) Subject heading begins with: “Big Books” and 2) Call number begins with:  BB.

Big books can be checked out for 28 days and are able to be renewed twice pending no prior requests.

These are accessible to Talking Books and Braille Library users and are also available for check out to eligible users of the State Library. If you are not in one of these groups, you can interlibrary loan them through your local public library using Loanshark.
