The library's video collection includes a large helping of Documentaries & How-to DVDs. It includes concerts, biographies, how-to, exercise and other selections. Here are a few of the recent purchases you'll find in the list on the New, Best & Fun page.
The Forgotten Plague is the story of tuberculosis in America, a disease once so commonplace some estimate it killed one of seven people around the world, including authors Emily Bronte, Anton Chekhov, Franz Kafka, and George Orwell. Watchers Of The Sky examines the life of Raphael Lemkin, a Polish-Jewish lawyer who coined the term genocide, and worked to ensure legal retribution for mass atrocities committed during war. Pay 2 Play: Democracy's high stakes connects the dot of big money in our election process. Food Chains describes the poor labor conditions of many farmworkers, and some strategies changing them for the better.
There's more, of course. Check out the New, Best & Fun DVD-Documentaries & How-to Films list for the latest additions and check the shelves at your local library for great DVDs that will inform, educate and entertain you.
