There Can Never Be Too Much Sports

sportsdisplayWith the smell of grilling meats, flavorless beer, and the sounds of tens of thousands of your closest friends all cheering for your favorite team as our inspiration, this month’s featured DVD display is all about sports.  You’ve got your Thursday-Monday entertainment all planned out: Football, Football, Football, Football, and Football.   But what do you do on Tuesday and Wednesday when ESPN isn’t showing some far-away school play some other far-away school? That’s right, you come to the library and check out a sports-themed DVD to hold you over.

We’ve got most of the ESPN 30-for-30 and Nine-for-Nine DVDs, as well as some classics like Bull Durham and Jerry Maguire, and some TV like Necessary Roughness.

So stop by the featured cart this month and fill out the rest of your week with sports.

If you’re the Hoss Cartright type, we’ve got plenty of classic western TV.  If looking for something from the Duke, well we’ve got that, too.

If you’ve never read western fiction before, I’ve added a few titles from our collection that might be of interest as well.

I’ve heard your cries for Arrested Development Season 4.

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:

  • 2 Broke Girls (Season 3)
  • 3 Days to Kill
  • Angel (Season 2)
  • Arrested Development (Season 4)
  • Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
  • Big Love (Seasons 1, 2, and 5)
  • The Blacklist (Season 1)
  • Bowfinger
  • Doc Martin (Seasons 1 & 2)
  • Flashpoint (Season 5)
  • The Glades (Season 3 & 4)
  • The Green Mile
  • Haywire
  • Hot in Cleveland (Seasons 3 & 4)
  • How Stella Got Her Groove Back
  • The Hunger (Season 1)
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season 8)
  • Longmire (Season 2)
  • The Men Who Stare at Goats
  • Midsomer Murders (Sets 22, 23, and 24)
  • NCIS (Season 11)

June is all about documentaries!

DocumentariesWhether 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.
