There’s nothing like settling down in a comfy chair with a bowl of popcorn or chips, a hot mug of cocoa, and a good book or movie. The Barriere Library can help, they have has many new book titles in stock and always have a wide assortment of videos and DVDs to choose from.
Here are some suggestions:

They must track them down! Hijinks ensue as husband Luke drives Becky, daughter Minnie, Jane, Suze and other favorite Kinsella characters across country from LA to Las Vegas in search of the missing men.

Do you know that if you don’t find the title you are looking for when you search in the library system for a particular title you can ask the librarian for an inter-library loan form. Fill in the title and author of the book you are looking for, and if it is available anywhere in North America, they will get it in for you (though it may take a week or two if the closest copy is on the other side of the continent).
