Large Print & Magnification Tools

Large Print Books: There are approximately 8,500 volumes in our adult large print collection. There also are large print books for youth available in Youth Services.

Large print books are well used by our patrons and also by patrons of other Illinois libraries through interlibrary loan. We also request large print materials from other Illinois libraries. The Large Print area is located on the main level of the Library, opposite the DVD shelves.     Oureach Large Print

Large Print Readers Digest is available on the Large Print shelves. One year of back issues is available to check out.

A donation of two Topaz Desktop Video Magnifiers was made possible through the St. Charles Public Library Foundation. These full-color magnifiers offer a variety of magnification and contrast settings and are computer compatible. 

Luxo Wave Plus lighted magnifiers are available for use in the Library through the generosity of the Geneva Lions Club.

Magnifiers are located along the west wall of the Carnegie Business Room.

Ask Outreach Services for a demonstration of these magnifiers. If you are in the Library, ask for Outreach staff at any public service desk or call us at 630-584-0076, ext. 219 or ext. 269.
