Dakota County Library adding Blu-Ray Discs to their collection

Starting Monday, May 2, Blu-Ray Discs will be available at the Heritage Library in Lakeville, Inver Glen Library in Inver Grove Heights and Robert Trail Library in Rosemount. 
While the collection is located at three libraries, Blu-Ray titles can be placed on hold and requested to be picked up at any Dakota County Library location.
The Library collection consists of the American Film Institute’s (AFI) 100 all-time top movies, the Criterion collection and blockbuster movies.
Blu-Ray titles can be checked out for a 7-day period for free, but there is $1 per day fine, if late.
You can search the library catalog and limit your search by using the terms “Blu-ray,” “Blu Ray” or BluRay. You can also search the library catalog by title to see if a Blu-Ray is available.
