Reader’s Digest Large Print

Jill, the head of the Reference Department, posted a blog recently requesting your suggestions for magazines to include in our collection.  We take all purchase suggestions under serious consideration, so please do let us know what you think. 

One reader suggestion came to us this way, …a few months ago, an elderly gentleman who is experiencing decreasing vision, lamented to me that he couldn’t enjoy Reader’s Digest anymore, because the print is too small.  One time when he was vacationing he discovered a large print edition in a local library and enjoyed spending an afternoon there reading several issues.  He suggested that Falmouth order it too.  I passed his suggestion along to Jill, who, knowing our community and our visitors, agreed it was a great suggestion! So, as of May, 2012, we now have the standard edition and the large print version of Reader’s Digest!

The large print version has all of the familiar features found in the regular print edition, namely:  nonfiction articles, stories, “Laughter, the best medicine,” and other humor columns, books, “Word Power,” a crossword and “Quotable Quotes.” Being nearly as big as a standard sheet of typing paper, and over 200 pages, you get all of the fun reading in the standard edition, but without the eye strain!  As you may know already, back issues of magazines can be checked out, so our May issue of Reader’s Digest, Large Print is available for check out now.  If you like chocolate, take a look at page 30 of the May issue for the “5-Minute Chocolate Cake” recipe.  Mix all the ingredients in a mug and pop it in the microwave for three minutes.  It looks easy and delicious!

If you have a suggestion for something to add to our collection, be it a magazine, movie, music CD or book, we would love to hear from you.  And there are numerous ways you can do that: you can comment here on the blog, give us a call at 508-457-2555 ext. 6, email us, text us at 66746 and start your question with askfpl, fill out the “Suggest a Title” form online, or stop by the reference desk and speak to a librarian!  We look forward to hearing from you.
