Ready, Set, Binge!

Binge Boxes Now Available

What is a Binge Box? A Binge Box contains four or five movies to satisfy your viewing needs for hours on end. Approximately 30 Binge Boxes are now available and more are "coming soon" to a living room near you. They include collections based on actor, director, subject matter, genre, era and eclectic themes such as "Surreality for the Merely Mortal," and "I Mean, We're Ninjas." 

Binge Boxes are perfect for school breaks, get-togethers with friends, date nights, family film festivals, road trips and more. Feeling nostalgic? Our 80s and 90s boxes take you back to the future and beyond. Sing along with our musicals collection or enjoy a retrospective of your favorite actor's work. Catch up on those award winners you may have missed. Whatever your cinematic craving, fulfill it with a quick trip to your library.  

Binge Boxes are not holdable so come in and browse the collection and discover something new. Patrons are limited to one Binge Box per library card. A Binge Box may be renewed twice. To access a complete listing, search for "binge box" in the online catalog or stop in and browse.  

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
