If we want to see a movie we go to the library for them. they aren't the latest release or may not be ones that are popular but we can find ones that are interesting. We can keep them for a week. If we want to see a current one we will only rent one if we get a coupon for rent one get one free. I have a card at video store and after a while they will give me one free just to get me back into the store. so some times we do that. Have you thought about using the library for entertainment lately?

When my daughters were younger we use to rent them from the library. Haven't done that in a long time though since they are older now. And I'm not home too much to slow down to watch a movie even. There is a site that you can watch movies on line. I'm using my daughters laptop and I'm not home or I would tell you the name of the site.

The library is a wonderful place to get movies as well as books- take it from a librarian here. Sure, it may not be up to date to the day, but it's still a pretty good resource. My library rents out DVDs for a week for free, while they rent out old VHS for three weeks. Compare this to any video rental store you like. If you're willing to wait, it works out pretty nicely. I myself check movies out from my library.

We have been getting movies from the library for over a year now. No fees, new releases, and 2-3 week check out time. I love it! I can sign up for a movie before it's even out on dvd, sometimes we have to wait a month before I can pick it up (I should keep a list so I'll know when to sign up). I haven't rented a movie in 15 or so years, my kids have never been into a rental place. They don't know any different and look forward to whatever it is they want to see.

Yes, we used to do it all the time! LOL. The library is better for a number of reasons. No late fees, free rentals, no copying problems, unlimited rentals per visit. Yeah they had a great selection for our kids viewing as well. They had lots of educational stuff too. All in all I always have a great experience when I go to the library.

Yes the lbrary is the best place for a number of things. id you know that you can check out art work to for a period of time at some of them? If you keep any thing past the due date you do have to pay an over due fee. It's nothing compared to the movies renal store though.

I never really thought of the library as a place I can rent movies, such as the ones we watch on t.v. and in movie theaters. I figured the only movies that were at the library would be the ones that are educational and help you in some way. But it's nice to know where else I can go get movies for kind of cheap. Do they charge you for renting from the library? Or as long as you have a library card there you are good? Well enjoy your movies.

The library does have a lot of educational movies but they also have moves just for entertainment too. No they don't charge for them You check them out just like you do books with your library card. You can also get books on audio tapes.

I don't think we have a library with that capability here in our country. And to think that they would be generous enough to lend it to library users. I don't think so. They will be worried that those movies won't be returned. But we have video for rent stores here. It is cheaper to watch vcds than to watch on cinema and you can enjoy it in your home.

We do have several video rental stores around but it's nice to get them from the library for free. I'm sorry that your libraries don't have them.

i hope we have those libraries too so we have movies for free. That would be cool. And I think there will always be a long line for video rental in the library when that happens.

Lately, my mom almost always goes to the library for movies. She belongs to a dvd club, but she says she can find really interesting movies at the library that she can't always find from the club. She loves historical movies and books, and always finds a good historical movie for the weekend.

Our library has a wide variety of movies and DVDs. I am some surprised at the amount that is there. I like some of the older movies and documentaries.

wow, I wish there were such library in our place. we only had movie rentals in neighborhood and not kind of library. I wish there were any, because that way it would be very fun to seek any title without spending too much time on searching all the movie shelves.

Do you have a library at all. Maybe you could get some one to donate the movies after they are finished with them or get the library to stock some.

We primarily use netflix for renting our videos/dvds. I do need to use the library more so we can see watch more stuff. Our library is great. It has a great children's program where kids can do summer reading, they have magicians and other characters that come and entertain them. our library also has passes so we can go to museums etc for either free or at a low cost.

My grandson had Netflex for a while but we decided that the library is nicer because it's free.

I have never went to the library to get movies. I have a Mylot friend who does go there and get her grandkids movies to watch though. We have been renting Netflix movies for about a year now. We can get new ones, old ones and new releases from them every month, unlimited, for $18.00 per month. They send it to us free of charge and they also give us a prepaid envelope to send them back in. You can keep them as long as you want with no late fees.

They do have some very interesting movies at our library. Ones I have found that I have never even heard of before. The library is a great outlet for kids. And interesting for adults as well. Some of the older authors wrote some interesting stuff.

I had never thought of it but it is a good idea.. We do watch a bit of TV and have cable so there is always a good movie on there.. But if you do rent many movies, it can save you quite a bit of money.. Good going..

I've been using the library's movies this way for years, ever since vcr was still 'in'. Our library has racks and racks of rent free movies to borrow, many of them I have not seen. We also have a rack of movies that are just released onto DVD, I think those are a 1 day borrow, plus you have to give them $2.00, after 2 weeks it moves to a different set of racks, and you can borrow it for a weekend and I think it's a buck. After a month, it moves to the older movies racks. It's such a great deal, where else can you get a movie for free? My daughter uses Blockbuster sometimes, but still, she gets a lot of the DVDs for kids from the library.

I had forgotten about the library for a while. I like to get some of the older movies any way. I like to watch some of the documentaries too.

Sure, I use it all the time. You pay taxes for it, might as well use it.
