Simplifying Without Sacrificing
June 21, 2012
One of my goals this year is to simplify my life, and one way to simplify is to reduce discretionary spending. Subscribing to Netflix falls in this category. Once I discontinued my subscription, I thought I wouldn’t be able to see recently released DVDs. Thanks to MCPL, that’s not the case.
Most newly released DVDs I want to watch are in the Library system. There are some caveats: I usually have to place the item on hold and the wait time might be a little while. Also, new DVDs usually must be returned within 7 days. I can live with that.
Here’s a quick way to access and browse new movie titles that we have put on order or will be receiving.
On this page, you can see our new book and new music titles, too!
One cool thing is if you put yourself on the holds list early, you can be one of the first to see it when the DVDs arrive.
I check the new DVDs and soon-to-be-released feature films fairly often. There’s almost always another movie I put on hold.
