    Studying for an exam? Researching a paper? RPL has you covered, with lots of free resources and information to help you with your schoolwork.

    Dyslexia-friendly collection 

    Our dyslexia-friendly books use fonts and formatting that make them easier for people with dyslexia to read.
    Find children’s and teen titles in our online catalogue or on the shelves at select RPL locations:  

    • Albert Branch
    • Glen Elm Branch
    • Prince of Wales Branch
    • Regent Place Branches

    If you’d rather read on your phone or tablet, you can adjust fonts and background colours in our Libby and hoopla apps, to make eBooks more dyslexia-friendly.

    To access all this great information, you need a library card. Your parent or guardian, or a teacher, can sign you up for a library card by filling out this form.
