Audio Visual Services
 

LOCATION
The Audio Visual Department at the Thomas Library is located on the west side of the building on the second floor. The Hageman Library only has audio visual collections for children and the items are shelved in the Children's area.

DVD's AND VIDEOS
The library has thousands of feature movies for your viewing pleasure. We don't try to compete with commercial video stores by purchasing large numbers of copies of the most recent releases, but we do attempt to develop a broad collection of movies from the past and present. Feature films are shelved alphabetically by title. The library also maintains a nice selection of nonfiction and instructional titles that are shelved according to the Dewey Decimal system.

AUDIO COMPACT DISC
The library's compact discs are among our most popular items. We have popular, classical, folk, holiday, country and jazz music in abundance.

AUDIO BOOKS ON CD
Commuters, vacationers, and many of our other patrons have discovered the joys of listening to our audio books on compact disc. We attempt to collect unabridged editions whenever possible. Titles include both fiction and nonfiction works.

MP3's

Our new MP3 Players circulate just like our other audio visual items and are unabridged recordings of many popular books. We don't circulate headphones or earbuds with the players for sanitary reasons, borrowers must provide their own. Batteries are included! 

Wii
Both the Thomas Library and the Hageman Library have begun small circulating collections of games for the Wii.  

RESERVES AND RENEWALS
Our audio materials (compact discs) can be reserved and held for you. Videos are only available on a first-come first serve basis and may not be renewed.

SPECIAL LOANS
