Our educational DVDs are growing by leaps and bounds!

We've recently revamped our educational DVD section on the second floor. Not only have we rearranged the display books for maximum viewing pleasure, but we've also added over 100 new titles to our collection. Our recent selections range from documentaries to travel films to how-tos to exercise programs to much more.
