Oversize But Overlooked

Every Evansville Vanderburgh Pulic Library location has an oversize collection-- books from the whole dewey decimal subject range that are too big in some way to fit properly on the regular shelves. These big books can be a real treat, but they are often overlooked since they aren't in with the rest of the collection. Do yourself a favor and find the oversize collection the next time you're visiting a library!

The oversize collection varies from location to location, but here are some examples from Red Bank Branch's oversize collection:
