Binge Box

We have started something new here at the Ortonville Public Library.  Many times patrons want to watch all the parts of a series, or want to watch all western movies.  We have solved that problem.  We have put 5 DVD’s in a tub for you to check out.  We received the first one in today:  Nicholas Sparks movies.  There are 5 Nicholas Sparks movies in the box.  You will be able to check the Binge Box out for one week.  We have a Western one and a few others also coming.  These Binge Boxes are made up of the older movies, not new releases.  Try a Binge Box!
