Library Collections supporting the ASSIST program

Discover collections to support the use of the library by patrons with disabilities

Large Print Book Collections:

If you have difficulty reading books with standard size type, you may be interested in our large print book collection. Each library in the Torrance Public Library system has a collection of both fiction and non-fiction large print titles.

Please ask library staff how to locate large print books in our collection or search the Library's online catalog to find the book you need in the large print format. Here are instructions how to find large print books in the online catalog.

Audio books:

The Torrance Public Library maintains a very large collection of spoken-word books, on compact disks and Playaway. Audio books come in abridged, meaning a shortened version, or unabridged format, in which the entire book is read to the listener. These materials are available at all library locations.

Braille Institute resources:

The Torrance Public Library offers collections donated by the Braille Institute including:

  • Braille spoken-word books
  • Braille spoken-word book players by the Braille Institute to listen to Braille spoken-word books

For more information about the Braille Institute resources available at the Torrance Public Library, please contact the Audiovisual Librarian.
