MyLibraryDV now available

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

HCPL has a new service for your viewing pleasure: MyLibraryDV, offering viewers digital downloadable videos on demand. Click on the link above or go to “Library Services, Branches, & Jobs” on the HCPL homepage and then click on “MyLibraryDV” right in the center of the page.

Using MyLibraryDV is easy. First, users need to download an application on their home computers in order to view the DVs. Once it is downloaded, users will then have access to a selection of classic, independent, and foreign films, as well as an impressive variety of instructional, travel, health and fitness, and other useful and entertaining videos, all viewable on home computers. MyLibraryDV includes kids’ programs as well.

The video entertainment selection includes Academy Award winners and other classic films. Some of the entertainment videos include William Castle’s campy horror film House on Haunted Hill, starring Vincent Price, Frank Capra’s last “social statement” film Meet John Doe, and the Italian Neo-Realist classic, Roberto Rossellini’s Open City. The foreign film collection goes beyond Open City, to include films on video from China, Finland, Spain, Russia, and many other lands.

Check it out…or more accurately, click on it, and watch videos on demand from your library, right in your home, through MyLibraryDV.
