The Board of Trustees recently approved a change to go into effect on January 1, 2015.
The checkout period for all DVDs will be 1 week, with 1 additional renewal of 1 week permitted (as long as the item is not on hold). This change will provide more people an opportunity to see the most popular movies and TV shows we have available, and keep our collection available as much as possible.
On a related note, Griffin Free is currently exploring ways to provide more of the newest DVD releases as quickly as possible once they are available. We hope to have some ordering/processing changes ready for the start of 2015, which will give you more of the latest hits and popular series, along with a variety of educational and children’s DVDs. Since DVDs are usually released on Tuesdays, our goal will be to have Tuesday releases available no later than the following Tuesday – and earlier when possible.
Until 2015, all DVD checkouts will remain 2 weeks with 2 renewals.
