Books on TV is here again! This post focuses on TV shows that are based off of nonfiction books. While the books are true stories with factual information, the shows do have some fictional elements. However, the shows still have truth and accuracy in the historical events depicted, the time periods represented, and the life stories of the characters. Take a look at the list below and check out the shows and/or books with your FRVPLD library card today!

It's time for another installment of Books on TV! In this third installment, we'll take a look at original TV series from streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. These services let you watch movies and TV shows directly online, no downloading, and no cable needed. This has become a popular service and continues to grow today. Because of this growth, Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu are developing their own TV shows. Several of these shows are based on books, and the DVDs and books they are based on can easily be checked out with your FRVPLD library card.
