Special Dyslexia Collection – Leichhardt and Balmain Libraries

We are pleased to inform you all that we have a new collection within our Children’s section of Leichhardt and Balmain Libraries. The collection will be included in the Junior Fiction collection, but it will have a special label. The Dyslexia Friendly collection will have a distinctive label. These books were purchased from Soundtext Media, one of our books suppliers. They are books which may be borrowed by all readers but they are especially geared towards those children with Dyslexia.

We will have special displays at Leichhardt and Balmain libraries and then we will be putting them in the collection. You may borrow these items at any time, just like you would borrow other books and items in the collection.

It is hoped that this collection of fun and innovative books will help those with Dyslexia and be enjoyed by the general public.
