Large Print and Video Pools


The County Library Co-operative is responsible for the acquisition, processing, maintenance and rotation schedules for the Large Print and Video Pools. The Pools are owned and funded by those members of the Co-operative who have decided to join the Pools.  Membership is voluntary and each Pool has its own committee and terms of reference.

Originally the Pool members administered the Pools themselves; however, the libraries found they did not have the time or expertise to effectively operate the Pools and asked the Co-operative to assume responsibility.

New material is ordered and processed semi-annually and the collections are rotated three or four times a year.  Currently, there are three libraries or branches that belong to the Large Print Pool and four that belong to the Video Pool.
