The "Merlin" at the Knowledge Centre can enlarge text or objects by up to 66% and can even invert colours. It’s quick and easy and is great for reading the daily newspapers!
Each library has a substantial collection of novels and non-fiction in large print and on disc (CD or MP3) which can be borrowed.
Kiosks are available at Knowledge Centre, Thornlie and Amherst Village libraries for library members to issue items to their own cards. The kiosks can be used in a variety of languages: Arabic, Bahasa (Indonesian), Bahasa (Malaysian), German, Greek, Hebrew, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Maori, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese, English…and Pirate English.
