Not everything in the Library is about study or research. We have a range of resources that will help you relax and unwind.
The DVD collection
We have a large collection of DVDs covering a wide range of film and TV genres. All titles are listed on the Library catalogue, so before you pay to stream a film, first see whether we have a copy in the Library.
If you don't have a DVD player on your laptop, you can borrow a portable DVD player from the Library. Just ask for one at the Library desk. It does not require any special software - just plug and play.
The little light reading collection
As its name implies, this collection of books is for those looking to while away a few hours with some light reading. The collection is housed on just six shelves at the end of Library East. There is no need to take the books to the Library desk - just borrow titles as and when you wish to, and return them...as and when you wish to. It is no more complicated than that. There is an eclectic mix of titles available as most titles are donations from members of the Castle community, so you may find yourself reading something quite different.
The CD collection
We have a range of music CDs available at the far end of the Lending Library. While consisting primarily of classical music, the collection also includes some modern 'classics' from recent decades.
If you don't have a CD player on your laptop, you can borrow a portable CD player from the Library. Just ask for one at the Library desk. It does not require any special software - just plug and play.
