Library Loans Videos from its Website

This weekend a patron asked for a video or DVD about Hawaii. The library didn't have quite what the patron wanted on the shelf, but we do offer travel videos through our website. BHPL subscribes to MyLibrarydv which allows patrons to download videos such as America's Test Kitchen, Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home, Lidia's Italian-American Kitchen, Antiques Roadshow, and other TV shows. MyLibrarydv also offers travel shows: Globe Trekker, Rick Steves' Europe and TravelView International where we found four programs about Hawaii.
To access this resource from your home computer or any other internet-connected computer, go to the library homepage, and click on the MyLibrarydv logo at the bottom of the page.
With this database patrons can borrow videos (they last for seven days on your hard drive) without leaving home, without paying any fees, without ever worrying about overdue fines, without using a DVR or recording device of any kind.
Try it out. If you have questions, please call the Reference Desk during library hours.
