To ensure the accessibility of reading to all, Northville District Library has created the Dyslexic Collection, a dyslexia-friendly youth print material collection.

This unique collection consists of picture books, early readers, and chapter books that use large-print, sans-serif fonts and contrasting colored paper and fonts to support easier reading. Additionally, colored overlays are available at the Information Desk for in-library use. Colored overlays allow readers to experiment with color contrasting, making reading easier, as well as using the ruler to stay on the current line and move smoothly to the next line.

The Dyslexic Collection was made possible by the generous donation from Kathy Alrubaiy in honor of her Aunt Evelyn. NDL will continue to grow this collection so that all may experience the joys of reading.

Dyslexia-friendly reading may also be downloaded on Libby or Hoopla. Users can edit their settings to dyslexia-friendly fonts and color contrasting. For more information about these options, visit or call the library and a librarian will be happy to assist you.
