Cabra College Library DVD Collection


DVDs for LoanOver the last two years we have selected, purchased and catalogued hundreds of films on DVD for loan to students and staff.  We now have a DVD collection of almost 900 films housed in the Senior Library.

By far and away our DVD collection is focused on films that have been based on books. In some cases the titles are identical, sometimes similar and sometimes the DVD is only loosely based on a book.

Library staff will only loan DVDs to students who are of the appropriate age for each film’s classification. Unless parents have a specific objection to their child borrowing DVDs, the library staff will loan G and PG rated films to all students. To borrow M, M15+ MA15+ rated films students need to be 15 or over. We do not stock R rated films of any sort. Our Access-It Library System knows the age of each borrower and will prevent M and MA films being loaned to those not of age. If you would rather your child did not borrow DVDs of a particular rating or at all please contact Mr Bull (sbull@cabra.catholic.edu.au) to discuss.

DVDs to Borrow from the Cabra Library Collection


DVDs for LoanOver the last few months we have selected, purchased and catalogued hundreds of films on DVD for loan to students and staff. I have sent several emails and written in the newsletter about the system of consent and age restrictions so if you have your form signed and stuck in your diary you can now borrow DVDs. Senior Library staff are on hand to help with your selection and give you a new form if you need one before borrowing.

By far and away our DVD collection is focused on films that have been based on books. In some cases the titles are identical, sometimes similar and sometimes the DVD is only loosely based on a book.

Book Lovers Must Watch!


Thanks to Peach Farm Studio for drawing our attention to this incredible book related animation, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

NOTES TO SELF

If you are a book lover, then you must watch this 2012 Oscar Award Winning animated film short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

(It’s 15 minutes long, but if you ask us, watching the whole thing to the very end is well worth it!)

Enjoy!
