Want to read a book but have difficulty?

Hunstanton Town Council is lending large print and audio books to people with dyslexia or low vision.
Five councillors have each paired with a Hunstanton Care Home as part of the council's Care in the Community Initiative and they will be taking the books and cassettes out during the next week - and there's nothing like a good story to take your mind off everyday worries!
A spokesperson for the council said: "We have received a donation of large print books and audio cassettes in very good condition from Vision Norfolk and are making them available to Care and Residential Homes in the community.
"The books and cassettes are also available to borrow from the Helping Hands Café, the council’s new ‘Warm Space’ on Mondays and Wednesdays 10 am – 12 noon held in the lower Hub of the Town Hall, the Community Centre, Avenue Road and are in stock at Hunstanton’s only book shop ‘By the Book’ in the High Street."
The council would like to provide equipment to the homes for the residents to play the cassettes on and is asking anyone with a cassette player and unused ear or headphones that they no longer require if they would be willing to donate them to the homes. The equipment can be dropped into the council offices Monday – Thursday between 10am – 1pm.
