Parent's Guide To GRRL Video Collections

Great River Regional Libraries offer a wide variety of Video material on DVD & VHS to meet the needs of library patrons of all ages. GRRL makes this material available with one restriction: material with an MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) R rating cannot be checked out by anyone with a minor card (under 17) or anyone under the age of 17 (minors) on another person's card.

GRRL adds one of three kinds of label information to videos:

Book Club Kits

Book Club Kits

GRRL provides Book Club Kits, bags or boxes containing multiple copies of a book (usually including an audiobook version and a large print version) as well as a study guide for use by book clubs. The kits check out just like books, but for six (6) weeks instead of three (3).


Audiobooks provide listening enjoyment for all ages and interests. Many popular adult and young adult books, fiction and non-fiction, are published as audiobooks, and GRRL has a large collection on CD and cassette.

The library also offers downloadable audiobooks through the GRRL Digital Library OverDrive service. New titles are being added all the time.
