The library's video collection is terrific, including recently purchased Documentaries & How-to DVDs. A selection is listed on the New, Best & Fun page. Here are a few of the recent purchases.
"The Galapagos Affair: Satan came to Eden," tells the strange, true story of a handful of individualists who settled on the Galapagos island of Floreana in the early 1930s. They included a self-styled German baroness and her two lovers, a German dentist and his patient who both left spouses to begin a new life together, and a back-to-nature idealist. It didn't end well. Neither has the involvement of the US in Iraq. "Losing Iraq" from PBS investigates the country's descent into its current crisis, caused in part by deep divisions in its peoples. More uplifting is "David Suchet, In The Footsteps Of St. Paul." Suchet is well know to many as the star of the PBS "Poirot" series. Here he traces the life of Paul who did perhaps more than any other individual to transform the local sect of Christianity into a religion spread far across the Roman empire.
Check out the New, Best & Fun documentaries list for the latest additions and check the shelves at your local library for great DVDs that will inform, educate and entertain you.
