Do you love movies? Check out our video page on BookSpace to download a movie to watch at home or check out what new DVDs the library has purchased. Use the library catalog to search for any additional DVDs we may own.
The Young Adult Library Services Association creates lists of movies around different themes. Check out Fabulous Films for Young Adults to find lists called Survival, Song and Dance, Other Times/Other Places, Outside In: Rebellion vs. Conformity, Coming of Age Around the World, and more. It's a wonderful way to discover new movies.
Do you think of yourself as a super fan or cinephile? Take a look at the Library of Congress' efforts to save important films by adding them to the National Film Registry. "Spanning the period 1897-1999, the films named to the registry include Hollywood classics, documentaries, early films, and independent and experimental motion pictures. This year’s selections bring the number of films in the registry to 600." Films added in 2012 include Breakfast at Tiffany's, A League of Their Own, and The Matrix. The Registry is a great way to discover classics that have inspired filmmakers for generations, and see movies that represent America through the decades.
