Most new DVDs are very popular!  But don't be discouraged. If you place a hold on a dvd that we own, you will get it before patrons from other libraries.  

To place a hold on one of these dvds, just click on the title or the cover art.  This will bring you to the catalog record for that film and you can then place your hold.
Also note:  Most of our feature film dvds are widescreen editions.  If you prefer full screen, you will need to go to a different record in the catalog.  But remember, you only get first preference (over patrons from other libraries) on Norfolk dvds.
