Greetings, salutations, and welcome back to another action-packed,
edge-of-your-seat, moved-to-tears, surprise twist-ending of a list of what
our beloved patrons are eagerly waiting on.

 

Some quick notes of interest that appeared as I was typing this out - there
are two films named "The Darkest Hour", one starring Gary Oldman as Winston
Churchill and the other is a 2011 alien invasion flick starring Emile
Hirsch.  Both titles have long hold lines.  There are copies of the 1990
film "A Handmaid's Tale" available that are not part of the Blu-ray / DVD
combo pack that is slowly churning its way through about a dozen holds.
There are copies of "It" that have eaten up the hold list like this sun is
eating up the snow.  When selecting one for your patron, don't automatically
chose the one with the longest list.  The same holds true for "Dunkirk".
And lastly, although not part of the official list, there are currently 8
holds on the 1 UHD 4K copy of "Blade Runner 2049".  The dawn of a new format
or a flash in the pan?  Time will tell.

 

So apologies for missing the lovely month of March.  The Gray Library
installed a new 4K projector and sound system, so I was a wee bit occupied
making sure the sub-sonic bass wasn't damaging the structural integrity  of
our foundation.  If you are in the area, come on by - you've never seen or
heard anything like it.

 

So I wish you all well through the coming storms (both real and imagined).
And always remember the immortal words of Tom Waits "I started out with
nothing and I still got most of it left."

 

Peace,

 

J
