Ultra High-Definition Blu-Ray discs have hit our shelves!
Now Available for Your Viewing Pleasure!  Ultra High-Definition Blu-Ray discs have hit our shelves! These "4K" Blu-ray discs produce the sharpest picture quality on a 4K screen. 

If you want to watch 4K Blu-ray disc on the TV, you will need a 4K Blu-ray player, a 4K television and at least HDMI 2.0 transmission interface. An ordinary Blu-ray disc player will not play a 4K Blu-ray disc. If you want to watch on a PC, a 4K Blu-ray drive, a 4K monitor, and a 4K Blu-ray player software are all needed. 
These new collections can be found both at the start of the Blu-ray feature collection and Blu-ray non-fiction collection sections.

Check out one of our new laptops from the check-out desk and use it inside the Library or on the patio.  The loan period is from the time of check-out until 30 minutes prior to closing on the same day. 
Laptops are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are equipped with the same software as the public access computers -- Windows 10, Microsoft Office 2016 and more. Borrowers wishing to save files must save them to a USB flash drive, to personal data storage on the internet (in the cloud) or to personal email accounts since all personal files will be wiped clean upon the laptop's return.  Wireless printing is available at the same rates as the public access computers.
