Help with Dyslexia

Our libraries can help library members with Dyslexia. For more information please contact your local library.

Barrington Stoke titles

Barrington Stoke is an independent publisher helping students make the jump from learning to read to loving to read. A wide selection of titles are held in our libraries. This collection is very useful as the content suits the age of reader while the text suits a lower reading age. Most of these titles are printed on a cream background with a special font to make reading easier.
