At the Richmond Public Library, you can always peruse the Latest Releases page on the library’s website, and with curbside pickup, you need digital options for browsing the new book shelves. But even with digital browsing, sometimes you want your options a little more … curated.
We can do that! Richmond Public Library has recently acquired some new DVDs that are bookish in nature. If you want you movie marathons to be a little more literary, try some of these titles. (Popcorn not included)
