Love Your Library: Sunday Hours Starting Oct. 14, 2012

On Sunday, Oct. 12, 2012, the Greater Victoria Public Library will resume its Sunday hours. Yay, autumn!

No more peering into the locked doors of your neighbourhood branch on a Sunday, wishing you could get your hands on that reserved book or movie you *know* is just sitting there on the holds shelf. Participating branches will be open Sunday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Lender of the latest literature, music, movies, games, and more, the library is quite simply the savvy scrimper’s best friend.

You DID know that the GVPL stocks DVDs and Blu-ray discs of the newest movie releases, both fiction and non-fiction—right? And that you can use the library’s reservation system to queue up items on hold for your future viewing?

It’s like the old Netflix movie-rental system (before downloadable digital movies, that is), back when the company used to send you a new allotment of films each time you finished with the last batch. Having a nice long list of movies on hold at the library is rather like that, except that the movies from the library are FREE to view. F.R.E.E. Free!

If you can find a better deal than that, e-mail me! 🙂
