A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
It used to be the case that Libraries were just for people who liked to stare at reconstituted trees, shaped into small rectangular blocks with added ink (books… Remember them? We still have them by the way) but these days there is so much more to a Library.
Today I want to tell you about our Audio Visual collections, DVD’s and CD’s, some may say both mediums have had their day but as a simple source of accessing film or music they still have their place and are still immensely popular with our customers.
You may dismiss this with your subscription to Netflix but try finding an obscure Japanese horror film on there, or a classic British war movie, or a Jazz concert recorded in the 1960’s and you may not have much luck.
We may not have them all either but you can talk to us, yes; real people, not droids and we can see what we can do about getting hold of a copy for you. Try that with a faceless internet film provider, you will probably spend an hour just looking for their email address on their website and then never receive a reply to your request; it’s enough to make you turn to the dark side. ‘Oh, but we like watching boxed sets on Sky’ you may say, we have them too, from Breaking Bad to Glee, we probably have it or can get it for you and if you decide to purchase an Audio Visual subscription card from us, all DVD’s are half price and CD’s are free! As are Audio Books… But that’s another story.
May the Library force be with you.
