In the news: many former Netflix customers are returning, despite Netflix’s decision to split their DVD and online streaming services last September which resulted in their loss of 800,000 customers.
What I find fascinating is the number of people I know who are Netflix subscribers, but who don’t make use of their library for their video needs. “Videos at the library?” you say? Yes, videos at the library.
Do you want TV series on DVD? Ask a librarian – we have most of the popular series available for you to borrow (yes, even for you BBC fans who like Doc Martin, Downton Abbey, and Doctor Who).
Do you want blockbuster movies on DVD? We have those, too. We purchase the latest releases every month.
Do you want funky independent or foreign films? Documentaries? Yup, we have those, too. And you’ll have a greater chance of seeing them through the library than Netflix since we have a much smaller customer base.
Do you prefer videos you can watch on your computer? Yes, we can do that, too. Comedies, dramas, mysteries, health and fitness, travel, and more are available for free download.
All of this is available with your library card. No monthly subscription fees. And if there is a title you don’t see, just ask us and we will do our best to get it.
