Friday Reads: Guideposts magazine in LARGE PRINT
We know that many Falmouth patrons prefer large print format for their books because it is much easier on the eyes than regular print. So we are dismayed that very few magazines are also published in this format. We’ve had the classic, Reader’s Digest in large print and for a while now and we have been looking for other suitable titles to add. Well, we are very pleased to announce that we finally found one: Guideposts.
Guideposts is a small, monthly magazine published by a nonprofit organization, (also called guideposts) which was founded in 1945 by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and his wife. Their website (guideposts.org) states, “Guideposts is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing hope, encouragement, and inspiration to millions of people across America and the world. Through uplifting magazines, books, websites, a prayer network, and outreach programs, Guideposts helps people deepen their faith and inspires them to reach their true potential.” They describe their magazine as having “stories that show the power of prayer and God’s work in our daily lives. These captivating stories will inspire you to put your faith into action and overcome your problems, achieve your potential, and help others.”
Our first issue arrived this week and you can find it in the periodicals room, filed alphabetically by its title, between Granta (a literary magazine) and Guitar World. As you can see, we have a variety of magazines that we hope will suit many tastes. Past issues can be checked out – just lift the shelf to find them.
