Non-book Staff Picks
Lark Rise to Candleford (series on DVD)
I was not quite done with the British show Lark Rise to Candleford when it disappeared from Hulu. Thankfully I was able to borrow the library’s DVD copies to finish the series.
The Vigil, 2019 (movie on DVD)
I recently watched The Vigil. It has elements of a horror movie but also touches on the emotional dynamics of grief, regret, sadism, religion, and romance. I thought it was well written and acted.
I fell in love with that album when I was graduating from high school, and feeling a bit lost and afraid as I faced the next part of my life. I’ve always found it immensely beautiful and comforting, and have come back to it many times over the years.
Masters of Horror: Stephen King (Binge Box with six DVDs)
Something from our collection that I particularly enjoy are Binge Boxes. Binge Boxes are collections of movies that you can check out all at once, gathered together under a specific theme. Each DVD set contains four to six movies and can be checked out for seven days. Binge Boxes are a great way to pass the time.
A Band Called Death, 2012 (movie on DVD)
I found the documentary A Band Called Death here. I saw it mentioned on Twitter when it came out- it’s such a great story about the band and their music getting rediscovered. The music is amazing.
