Have DVD, Will Travel

As part of a pilot program, soon DVDs will transit between Evergreen Indiana libraries. That means, if my library has a DVD you want, and your "home" E.I. library is elsewhere (say, for example, in Clinton, Indiana, where Clinton Public Library's famous cat, Oliver, lives; or Thorntown, Indiana, where Thorntown Public Library's famous cat, Chance, lives, and where the even more famous cat, the late Tober, lived), you may place a hold on the desired DVD using your Evergreen Indiana library card and designate delivery to your "home" E.I. library.  Our DVD will be sent to you there, just like books, audiobooks, graphic novels, and other cool stuff you may checkout from the consortium.  When you're finished watching, just return it to any E.I. library, and it will be sent back to us through our transit system.  Pretty easy!

Of course, the whole thing works in reverse--our patrons may place holds on other participating E.I. libraries' DVDs (only a certain number of libraries have been selected to participate in the pilot program), which will then transit here for our patrons to pick-up and return.

Our promo trailer (video) elaborates.

How soon will DVDs begin to transit?  The Indiana State Library is still putting the finishing touches into our computerized system, so it will probably be sometime in March or April 2017.  But it's coming, and soon you'll be able to see lots of movies that your local E.I. library may not have. It's just another aspect of the wonderfulness that's Evergreen Indiana--your access to over seven million items!

Where do you find DVDs at my library?  I've got a map for that.  Make with the photo, minions.

P.S.  My more senior readers may recognize that I based my title to this blog post on the television series, Have Gun -- Will Travel (1957-1963), starring Richard Boone as Paladin. Here's the series' theme song, "The Ballad of Paladin," sung by Johnny Western.
