What’s the most powerful literacy tool on your shelf? Libraries across the country are discovering that large print can effectively support striving readers, ESL/ELL students, and children with special learning needs.

Large print isn’t just a bigger font size. Compared to standard print format, large print books are proven to help with decoding, fluency, tracking, and comprehension.

Hear from librarian, Tasha Squires, who has found success after embracing large print and partnering with teachers to bring large print books into the classroom. She has seen wider usage, noticeable reading improvements, and happier readers!

And because we believe that every library can successfully build and promote their own large print collection, we’re giving all attendees a 5-step action plan and helpful marketing materials.
