Library lending opportunities

The stars of Hollywood Boulevard will be shining bright this weekend and people across Aberdeenshire are being encouraged to be part of Oscars season.

This Sunday, February 24, the winners of the 85th Academy Awards will be announced, and to celebrate the festival of film-making, Aberdeenshire Libraries are encouraging users to make use of the many lending services available to members.

Hit animation Brave – nominated this year for best Animated Feature Film – is just one of thousands of films available to borrow from the libraries service.

Movies from 2013 Best Male nominees Bradley Cooper, Denzil Washington and Hugh Jackman are also available, while previous best picture winners including Slumdog Millionaire, The King’s Speech and The Artist can be picked up from branches across Aberdeenshire.

The DVDs are available to reserve online and can be collected from any of the 36 branches and four mobile libraries across the Shire. Adult members can borrow DVDs for £2.20 each for a period of up to two weeks, offering library members a great opportunity to celebrate Oscars season by borrowing Hollywood’s best productions.
