Blu-Ray Format

Comment:  "Blu-Rays"

Reply:  Movies on Blu-Ray discs offer a high-quality picture and greater capability for bonus features as compared to regular DVDs.  One of the drawbacks for libraries is that Blu-Ray discs are $8.00 to $10.00 more expensive than standard DVDs, and cost of materials is always a consideration when thinking about adding new collections of library items.  We look to the demands of our patrons, both from suggestions in our comment cards and from your use of other libraries' Blu-Ray collections through the inter-library loan system.  Currently we haven't seen much demand -- only about 1-2 Blu-Ray discs come via inter-library loan every month.  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.
