With the cold winter weather approaching and the days getting shorter, it’s the time of year where I especially enjoy curling up on the couch and watching a movie after a long day of work. The holidays are just around the corner, and that means the Christmas DVDs are sure to fly off the shelves here at FRVPLD. Don’t forget, though, that you can stream movies for free with your library card now that we have Hoopla! Hoopla has variety of Christmas movies available for all ages that you can stream right away.
