This summer’s batch of new movies are arriving at local theaters with lots of fanfare. It can be difficult to make it to all of the ones we would like to see. Perhaps like me, you missed some of last years releases. Why not plan an at home movie night and catch up? The library has a wide selection of movies on DVD to choose from.

You can check out up to three movies at a time free of charge with your library card. Many of them can be checked out for up to 7-days . The collection includes children’s, young adult, and adult movies all with ratings posted on the DVD cases.

I have listed quite a few here, but for a complete list go the the library website at www.bossierlibrary.org and search DVDs. If you see something you like, place a hold on it and pick it up at your home branch when it arrives.

“Jack Reacher” Paramount Pictures; “Jackie Robinson: My Story” MyMar Entertainment; “Life of Pi” Fox 2000 Pictures; “Argo” Warner Bros. Pictures.
