Roku available at Gail Borden Library
The Gail Borden Library has added seven Roku Digital Media Players to its catalog of items customers can check out at its main location downtown.
A Roku allows you to stream movies and television shows. The media players are preloaded with movies from the library's digital collection and 26 channels such as VUDU and Amazon Prime that offer movies, videos and TV shows, plus documentaries on channels such as PBS, History and TED.
"I've been surprised and happy at how many people have been checking them out," library team leader Joy Schumacher said.
The library started making the units available earlier this month. Rokus can be checked out for seven days. To use the Roku, library customers will need a library card, a television with an HDMI input or with red/white/yellow inputs for AV cables, and wireless Internet.
