New DVDs and Blu-rays

The Library purchases new movies monthly, often in multiple copies for hot new releases. Even so, it is hard to keep up with demand. The easiest way to ensure your receipt of a new release is to place it on hold in the Pinnacle catalog. If you need help placing holds, please contact the Reference Desk or call the Library at 815-327-2515.

The Library produces a monthly email newsletter informing you about new DVDs. You can sign up for this newsletter online.
