Just sent in a new cart of DVDs this week. It’s mostly TV, and quite a bit of it is just reordering things that we had but now don’t have for one reason or another. What reasons are those you ask? Well, I don’t know exactly, but if I had to guess:
Someone didn’t have a soft cloth to clean the disk with, so they just used sandpaper instead.
Someone thought they were more important than everyone else that uses the library and decided not to bring back the movie.
Someone accidentally stored their DVDs in the cabinet marked “Narnia”.
Someone was running late for ultimate frisbee practice and just grabbed the first disc-shaped thing they could find.
Someone gave the disc to their baby/dog/rabid wolverine.
I discarded a movie because it had never checked out, and then instantly became the most popular movie in the world.
Here’s hoping none of these titles suffer any of those fates:
I love Bob’s Burgers. The kids’ humor is just dark and twisted enough to give the show an edge without being too much, and there’s plenty of life lessons and weird family bonding to be had at the same time.
We’ve got a couple copies of each of the first two seasons, and I’ll be sure to add more as time goes on. Look for it next time you’re in.
This order will be the last of the fiscal year! That doesn’t really mean anything. Also, it’s composed mostly of reorders, specifically of shows that are super popular (I’m looking at you, Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS fans).
It’s also got the big-ticket movies Godzilla (2014) and Labor Pains.
Whether or not you go to school, summer has a special way of turning off brains or at least setting them to “float in the pool” mode. Fight the summer brain drain with a documentary on nearly any topic you can imagine. Grab one that interests you, or pick up one in a totally unknown topic to expand your knowledge.
We’ll have a display near the DVD section until the end of June, so browse through it and find something entertaining and educational to add to your stack. If nothing on the cart jumps out at you, anything on the back wall of the DVD section is non-fiction, so you can find an even larger selection there.
While I put together a larger order for fiction DVDs, I took the time to update our collection of computer skills videos. Earlier in the year I noticed that they were severely outdated and of no use to anyone, so I discarded them to make room for a future order to replace them. This is that order.
With Paducah facing layoffs from USEC, quite a few of our fellow citizens will be looking to brush up on skills that will make them more competitive in the job market. Videos like these, as well as the awesome books in our non-fiction section, will be very helpful in learning or refreshing those skills.
I’ve been waiting (and waiting) for this movie to be released, and it finally arrived in the building a couple days ago. Now we just wait a few days to get it processed and it’s out on the shelf for us all to enjoy.
Got some good TV and movies in this batch this week. It also includes Anchorman (the first one), and I cannot figure out how we don’t have a single copy of that movie in this building. People not being good to their DVDs, I guess. BE GOOD TO YOUR DVDs PEOPLE.
Just put in an order this week, and there are some great new movies on it, and some long-overdue replacements as well. Oh, and because there is no genre you guys love more than horror, there’s lots of horror movies here, too! To the list!
Not many big-name movies in this batch. Mostly these are reorders and older classics that have been suggested for us to order. Almost all suggestions get ordered, since we’re in the business of providing access to content, rather than censoring what we put on the shelves. Most of the time, things don’t get ordered because they are nearly impossible to find, very expensive, or some combination of the two. Very occasionally there are movies that are just so poorly reviewed or that will only appeal to such a small audience that they lose out to more popular titles (gotta spend those tax dollars wisely).
