Downloadable Media

DVDs and VHS Movies

All branch libraries offer many movie titles, including new releases.

Computer and Internet Access

The Internet is a tool for lifelong learning, providing a wealth of information. But like all resources, not all material is suitable for all age levels or tastes. As with books, magazines, videos, and television programs, there will be some items, which you may find controversial or inappropriate for yourselves and especially for your children. Parents are encouraged to supervise their child's Internet sessions, and to inform the child if there are resources they don't want the child to access.

Patrons must adhere to the Library's Internet Use Policy Any individual violating the conditions outlined in the policy will be denied access at the discretion of the Arkansas River Valley Regional Library System.

Our computers are equipped with Microsoft Office and Adobe Reader, with a public access printer. First five copies are free, and then there is a charge for any additional copies.
