Relax! You Have Time. Starting April 15, DVD loan periods will be extended.

Woman eating popcorn and enjoying a DVD from HCPLIt has happened to all of us. You check out DVDs planning to catch up on that TV series everyone is talking about. Then life happens: the kids remember their science project is due; your mother shows up unannounced; your secret crush finally calls to ask you out. Harris County Public Library can’t do anything about life’s little surprises, but we can give you more time to watch those videos. Starting April 15, 2013, HCPL will extend the checkout period for all DVDs, including new releases, from one week to two.

With more and more classic and current TV series coming out on video, and with PBS’s Downton Abbey and Showtime’s Homeland among our most requested DVD sets, it makes sense to extend the checkout period so that you can have the time to enjoy them. No one should have to cram a season’s worth of viewing into a single weekend.
