Latest News from Adult Information Services

You've probably already had the exciting experience of getting the latest best-seller or music CD (without having to wait on a hold list) by picking up a HITS copy. Now you will be able to do the same thing with many of the most popular new movies and television shows on DVD and Blu-ray. As with other HITS items, these movies and TV shows are first-come, first-serve (no holds can be placed on them), they check out for one week, and they may not be renewed. You can find them on the tall shelves behind the Information Desk with the other new DVDs and Blu-rays—just look for the pink "HITS" sticker on the case. Make it a movie night!
