DVDs at the Library

The library's DVD collection of domestic and foreign movies is superb, with selections for all ages and genres. It's a large collection best searched online. Some of the most recent purchases appear on the DVD - U.S. & Foreign Feature Films list which you'll find on the New, Best & Fun page, tabbed on top of the catalog.

The oldest of the current "new" films is "The Freshman," made in 1925. It's a comedy starring Harold Lloyd as a nerdy college student trying to become popular. A much more recent release is "Saving Mr. Banks," starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in the true to life portrayal of his struggle to get author P.L. Travers (played by Emma Thompson) to allow her fictional character Mary Poppins onto the big screen. Another true story is told in "Life Of A King," the story of how a career criminal turned his life around to work with inner city teenagers in Washington, D.C.

You'll find something new to enjoy in the collection every week. Check the list and search the catalog for great video viewing from the library.
