blu_ray_blog Thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of the Library, we now have Blu-ray Discs available for checkout.  Blu-rays have greater storage capacity than regular DVDs and offer a high-definition viewing experience.  Blu-rays cannot be played in regular DVD players—you do need to have a Blu-ray player (or a PlayStation 3 console) in order to use them.  This new collection is located with the “New DVDs” and is available to AHML cardholders only.  They may be reserved, and there is a limit of two per cardholder.  The checkout period for blu-rays—like regular DVDs—is one week.  You can see a list of those we own by searching Blu-ray as a subject in the online catalog.

The Library’s new bookmobile is making its rounds with a new look and great updates users will appreciate. The new color and graphics on the outside are just the beginning. It is three feet longer so it has more room to carry the newest books, movies, music and magazines. It also has a higher ceiling, additional skylights and better lighting. And with lower steps into the bookmobile, it is even easier to come aboard. In addition to the added space, it has a new “green” feature – a battery pack that helps save fuel by using the generator less. Check here to see when it is coming to a stop near you.
