It's not just books!

Do you know someone who has difficulty reading and therefore does not come to Mosman Library?

You might like to tell them that we have a lot of other resources apart from books for them to borrow. We have audio books, DVDs, graphic novels, magazines and music CDs for all to enjoy.

Audio books come in CD and cassette formats. They are a great way to enjoy a book in the car or while working out. Some of our latest additions to the audio book collection include The Wild One by Damian Johnstone, 18 Hours: The True Story of an SAS War Hero by Sandra Lee and Trial and Retribution by Linda LaPlante.

We also have the popular Audio Navigators for Home Library Service readers and other sight impaired readers.

Mosman Library’s DVD collection includes movies, television shows, documentaries, and music DVDs. New titles in the collection include Juno, Stardust, The Gruen Transfer, Jane Austen Book Club and Top Gear.

For teens who struggle with reading, the Teen Zone offers many options. The graphic novel collection includes classics like Superman and Spiderman plus Japanese style manga novels. There is also a series called After Dark that has been designed with simplified language but interesting stories to encourage a love of reading. Teens also have a collection of audio books to choose from.

The magazine collection includes titles for everyone in the family. For children there is Challenge, Ladybug and Explore. For teens there is Mad Magazine, Dolly, Skateboard and TV Hits. The adult collection includes Vogue, Yachting World, Vanity Fair, Paris Match and Empire to name just a few.

The CD collection isn’t just classical music anymore. Popular music, jazz, rock, hip hop, choral and world music are all available from Mosman Library. But don’t worry; there is still plenty of classical music from Bach, Chopin and Debussy for your listening pleasure.
