November 23, 2015 - 12:40pm -- sshea

When Brook Street’s Acme Video Store was forced to close its doors in 2013, PCL stepped in to make sure that its film collection remained available to the people of Providence. Eighteen months on, the task of cataloging the vast collection of more than 5,000 DVDs is now complete!  The collection includes TV series, classic comedies, thrillers, drama, children's cinema and many popular titles – all available for loan for free with a PCL library card. We are sure you’re going to like the DVDs – the Acme collection has resulted already in more than 19,000 new checkouts! Many thanks to staff members Cynthia Reed and Tim McGinn who took on the gargantuan task of adding the titles to PCL’s catalog! Why not browse the Acme collection and see if there is a movie that catches your eye?
