FRVPLD Binge Boxes: A movie multiplex in a box!

Binge Boxes are a themed collection of movies that patrons can check out all at once for a spectacular movie night. Each Binge Box contains four to six DVDs, all centered on a theme.  For example, the “Pixar Picks” box includes the movies The Incredibles, Inside Out, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., and Up.

Randall Oaks Binge Boxes

Under current extended check out periods (due to COVID-19) Binge Boxes can be checked out for six weeks and renewed twice (if it has not been placed on hold by another patron). To find the Binge Boxes in the online catalog, just type “Binge Box” into the search field, or click on the Binge Box title below to go straight to that item.

Binge Boxes were originated by Midwest Tape, the library’s supplier of DVDs. FRVPLD took it to the next level and held a competition for staff to curate their own collection of Binge Boxes. Staff from all departments of the library submitted more than 100 entries in the Binge Box contest, and then voted for their favorites to narrow it down to the 20 that are now available for checkout. Here are the winners:
