Then navigate through the content using the Roku remote. Channels include, Netflix,, PBS, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Audio Crush, BBC World Service, Openfilm, Disney, and many more.

Access the Library’s collection through the Vudu app. You’ll find 250+ movies and TV shows in many popular genres such as action, comedy, drama, and horror along with family-friendly movies and children’s shows. The selection is constantly growing.

Two Roku devices will be available at the Circulation Desk. Rokus can be checked out for seven days by patrons age 18 or older. The Roku comes in a kit with a remote, a power cord, a HDMI cable, an instruction sheet, and a movie/TV show list.  Check the Library’s catalog for Roku availability.   If both are checked out, place yourself on hold or ask at the Info Desk.
