If you have gently used DVDs you no
longer need, we would love to have them to share with our patrons.  We are very grateful for these additions to
our DVD collection because our annual DVD budget is only $1,000.  We now have 1,550 DVDs.  In addition to popular titles and classics,
we have DVDs for children, musicals, exercise, history, action and adventure
films – not to mention many Academy Award films, including “Argo” and “Beasts
of the Southern Wild” from this year and many more from recent years.. 

reminder:  We no longer are accepting
video tapes for space reasons.  As our highly
popular DVD collection grows, we have to reduce the size of our VHS
collection.  Over the past few years, we
have slowly been weeding the VHS tapes to make room for more DVDs.
