Families and children with additional needs
Our children's books are in a range of formats:
- board books for babies
- touchy feely books
- large print
- high interest low reading level books (Barrington Stoke Books)
- graphic novels
All of our libraries offer free usage of computers. Every computer has Dolphin Supernova, which allows screen magnification and audio assistance for the visually impaired. There is also a 'large' mouse and 'large' keyboard to enable easy use of the computer for people with additional needs. You can ask a member of staff to assist you with any of these services.

All of our libraries have customer feedback forms so you can communicate your thoughts about the service. We welcome your comments, as they help us continually improve our services.
