Ulverscroft Large Print – New books, with minor imperfections
Local Anstey firm Ulverscroft have kindly donated a lot of new, almost-perfect, large print books that we can sell to help us raise funds.  The minor imperfections are generally a slightly dented page, or a small misbinding – and generally they look in absolute mint condition.  Large Print books are a lifeline to many and very expensive to buy, so it is well worth coming in and having a look at the selection we have on offer.  They would make an ideal Christmas gift.

If you have any books that you would like to donate – they would be gratefully received.  Simply bring them into the library.  If you have a large collection, or it is difficult to transport them – please let us know and we may be able to collect within a range of 3-5 miles.
