Before you pick up the popcorn and soda for your next movie night at home make the library your first stop. It may not be the first place you think of to find a good movie or two, but you will be surprised at the wide variety we have in older movies as well as newer releases. There is something for all ages and interests.
Take home The Hunger Games series for a marathon movie night or the Walt Disney Studios movie Frozen that the entire family can enjoy. If you missed a couple episodes of your favorite television series there are quite a few in our collection such as Downtown Abbey, Bones, The Closer, and Dexter.
You can also download a movie from Hoopla by going to the library website at www.bossierlibrary.org. There are several movie categories to choose from: Based on True Story; Independent Cinema; Disney; Just for Kids; and Award winners.
Planning a road trip? Keep the younger children entertained while traveling with a few DVDs they will like such as Chuggington, Peter Pan and The Wiggles. Antz by DreamWorks Animation and Spider-man: The Ultimate Villain Showdown by Buena Vista are great for older children who want some time to themselves.
The only movie ticket you will need is your library card. Just think how much you will save by going to the library for your movie night selections.
Our library! Gateway to the Past, Bridge to the Future.
