Blu-Ray DVDs are here!

The library has started a collection of the next generation in high-definition media, Blu-Ray DVDs.

This new format provides five times more capacity than today's DVDs.  This enables
the disc to provide entertainment in full high-definition quality, more content and additional special features.

There is also a greater level of interactivity than ever  before.  For example, some titles may allow you to control multiple viewings of a concert, call up related information about an artist, song or venue, scroll through song lyrics.  Different discs will contain different features.

You can enjoy your Blu-Ray DVD on Blu-Ray players, Blu-Ray enabled computers, and the Playstation 3.  Regular DVD players will not play Blu-Ray movies.

Click here to see all of our recently added Blu-Ray titles.

For more information about Blu-Ray DVDs, the technology, title release information, reviews, and more, go to http://www.blu-ray.com/.
 

 

                                 Kindergarten Readiness

 

                                                      Help your four-year old get ready
                                               for kindergarten! Stop by the
                                                Children’s Services desk
to pick
                                             up a 2008 - 2009 calendar full of
                                        activities designed to develop the skills
                                          your child will need to start school.  If
                                       you bring your four-year-old with you when
                                        you pick up your calendar during the
                                       month of September, your child will receive
                                a special surprise – and your name will be
                                      entered into a drawing for a backpack filled
                                  with reading readiness materials! 

 

                                   Calendars, available in both English and in
                               Spanish, are generously provided by United
                                 Way of Lake County
