Blu-Ray Discs

Suggestions: Please Consider getting Blue Ray discs for patrons to check out. They are becoming very popular. Thanks!

Reply: Buying Blu-Ray discs is a funding and demand issue. We have limited funding for adding new collections to the library and need to have enough demand to warrant shifting funds for a new purpose. I did speak with the Head of Circulation and asked how many Blu-Ray discs are coming to the library through Inter library loan. She said the number is very small about one or two a month. We will not be purchasing movies on Blu-Ray at this time.

You are welcome to place holds for Blu-Rays discs at other libraries in our system. Any movie that has been owned by a library in the system for more than three months is shared between the libraries.
