Did you know that you can borrow movies and tv shows on DVD from the library? We have a wide variety of choices that are rated PG and up on the main floor and G rated in the children’s department. This month, I was able to add a couple of new titles for each collection.
For the kids, we have a Mo Willems favorite, “The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?”. In this adorable story, based on Mo’s popular book, duckling does get a cookie but Pigeon isn’t very happy about it. The beloved Pigeon returns for this hilarious adventure that will keep kids giggling…and minding their manners!
Something new that has come to our collection is “Sofia the First, The Secret Library”. When Sofia discovers a wondrous hidden library of unfinished books, she learns it is her destiny as “Story Keeper” to make the tales come out right. This sweet story proves that when you believe in yourself, you can create your own happy ending!
For the adults, we have a mesmerizing and funny performance from Sally Field. “Hello, My Name is Doris” is the story of a woman who is just not ready to act her age. This is a witty and compassionate late-life coming of age story that will make you cheer and want to say, “I’m possible!”
And finally, who doesn’t love the Coen Brothers?! “Hail, Caesar!” is an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. (Including George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand and many more famous faces!) It follows a single day in the life of a studio “fixer” who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.
If you are looking for something fun to watch while you beat the heat, take a look at our DVD collection and see if there is something there for you. These DVD’s can be borrowed for up to 2 weeks and are another wonderful, free service that we offer here at your Drake Public Library.
