DVD usb device

A portable DVD player is now available for use in the library.  Ask for it at the circulation desk and then plug it in to a USB port on your laptop or a library computer. Headphones are necessary to view DVDs in the library and are available for checkout.

You can also view DVDs on a large screen in a study room.  Bring your disc to the desk and we will set it up in a library DVD player connected to the study room.
