Large Type Collection

Large Type book, also known as Large Print book, is a type of book in which the fonts (sizes of print) are printed slightly larger than commonly accepted sizes. Computer users nowadays understand that word processing software such as Microsoft Word uses 12 point font as the standard document size; however, anyone can easily change the font number to 14 or 16 for easier reading. Large Type books in the library are approximately 16 point font in size or larger.

Cypress Park Branch Library has a Large Type Collection in both Fiction and Non-Fiction for community's information needs. Newly arrivals of Large Type books are shelved at New Books section near Reference Desk for the first 6 months. After 6 months displayed time period, the books are relocated to their permanent shelves. 

Among the latest additions are:
Waiting to Be Heard by Amanda Knox whose overturned conviction of murder case in 2007 was on international headlines.

Never Go Back, a mystery by bestselling author Lee Child, is also available.
