Binge on DVDs

Posted about 2 years ago by Meg Raymond

At the Richmond Public Library, you can always peruse the Latest Releases page on the library’s website, and now that we’ve moved back a phase to curbside pickup, you need a different way to browse the new book shelves. Even with online browsing, sometimes you want your options a little more … curated.

We can do that! The library is always adding great DVDs – new(ish), classics, overlooked gems – we have DVDs for every taste. Some recently acquired DVDs include:

Clemency – directed by Chinonye Chukwu

If I'm not librarianing, or chasing one of my plethora of dogs around the yard, I probably have my nose buried in a book. I like all kinds of books. Regency romances - love 'em. Gory police procedurals - yes, ma'am. Historical fiction - please, and thank you. Heavy "literary" titles - shhhh, I may not have actually finished some of those! Off-beat, warped, slightly askew books - oh, yes, indeedy. Violent supernatural fantasy - why not? Chick lit, hen lit, lad lit - yeah, yeah, yeah. What have you read? Need a suggestion, or ten?
