DVD & Blu-ray
Did you know you can borrow DVDs and blu-rays from the library for free? We have movies for all ages, tastes and interests.
The adult DVD collection has a broad range of titles, and includes:
- mainstream feature films
- independent films
- Canadian films
- world language films
- selected TV series
- award winners
- teen appeal
- high-interest Informational topics (wellness, painting, travel, performance, etc)
DVDs in the regular collection may be reserved for pickup at any location through the holds system. A Fastviews browsing collection provides additional copies of current, high-demand DVDs; these items are not holdable, and have a shorter loan period.
The children’s DVD collection consists of films created for a preschool or school-age audience, including a selection of:
- feature films
- popular children’s animated TV series and
- films adapted from children’s picture books or based on children’s book characters
- high-interest informational topics (trucks, dinosaurs, animals, etc)
- award winners
We introduced a collection of blu-rays in 2011. Blu-rays last longer than DVDs, have a higher definition picture, excellent sound and added features. They can be played on a blu-ray player or a Playstation 3 console. This collection includes adult and children’s titles that are only being released on blu-ray, as well as a selection of other feature films. Like DVDs, there are blu-rays in both the regular collection and the Fastviews collection.
