Posted on

Tomorrow (or midnight tonight for some folks) is the day that many people have been eagerly anticipating for a while now: the release of The Dark Knight Rises.

And with the release of the newest and final film in director Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films, quite a few patrons have come in looking to whet their appetite on all things related to the caped crusader…

So we’re happy to remind you that we have quite a few Batman graphic novels, as well DVDs. Hopefully they’ll help you satisfy your hunger for some of the adventures of Gotham City’s favorite characters.

And if you get a chance, let us know what you think of the new movie.

Find great eBooks and Audiobooks online:

Posted on

One of the most popular requests from our patrons concerns whether or not we have eBooks or Audiobooks that they can listen to. Well…

We’re happy to tell you that the Air Force provides its library users with several great tools for downloading both eBooks and Audiobooks from the internet…

One Click Digital.

Contains eAudiobooks from Recorded Books. Library patrons can search for, check out, and download eAudiobooks to a computer and a wide range of portable devices, including your iPod. You can access your library’s eContent 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You will need to contact the Robins AFB Library to get a code to set up your account.

OverDrive.

Providing eBooks as well as eAudiobooks to Air Force Libraries, as well as now offering music and video selections. Offers titles in a wide variety of forms, including Kindle, NOOK, and Sony Reader for eBooks, and all varieties of iPods and Apple products for the audio files.

You need to contact the Robins AFB Library to get a code to set up your account.

And: Both One Click Digital and OverDrive require to you download a media managers app to download, manage, and sync your files through.

We’d also like to remind you that we have many other online resources that we hope will benefit you, including numerous research databases, as well as Transparent Languages for learning a foreign language, and Universal Class, which provides over 500 different online courses in a variety of subjects and at different levels, all instructor-lead but self paced, and Tutor.com, which is a great resource for online tutoring and educational support, as well as many others. There’s also Peterson’s online, which provides test preparation and resources, as well as help with college planning, and a career and resume center, and Military One Source, a 24/7 resource for military members and their spouses and families.

Some of these resources do have certain restrictions or requirements though, such as: You need to physically come into the Library to register for Transparent Languages (and then you can do it anywhere online), and Tutor.com is only for active duty military personnel.

We hope that these can be of use to you and you’ll come and check them out.

And we also have Audiobooks in the Playaway format…

If you don’t know much about the Playaway format, then we’d suggest that you come and check them out.

A Playaway is basically a single book loaded onto an MP3 player. All you have to do is plug in some headphones and press play and you’re off to the races. The Playway is small enough to fit into your pocket, and it’s great for working out or running/jogging, or even just doing something like cleaning the house. But where the CD format is really nice for listening to an audiobook in the car, you’d have to have something to transfer the sound from the Playaway to your car stereo. Perhaps if you do something like that with an iPod or a similar MP3 device then maybe that could work as well.

To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf, and read by Juliet Stevenson

The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler, and read by Kimberly Schraf

New and Featured DVDs for 03/15/12:

Posted on

Come and check out these and some of the other new DVDs and materials (or at least new to us) added to our library collection…

FICTION:

Sunset Boulevard

The Trip

2010, directed by Michael Winterbottom. A compilation film from a short British television series featuring comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon playing fictionalized versions of themselves, as friends and rivals, on a road trip to review restaurants in the north of England. But it’s about so much more than that. And it’s hilarious. Check out the trailer below:

And if that’s not enough for you, go to YouTube and check out the clip of Coogan and Brydon’s compete Michael Caine impressions.

Stop-Loss

The Last Starfighter

Vantage Point

To Sir, With Love

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 1

and

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Splice

Where The Wild Things Are

Julius Caesar

1953, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz

L’Avventura

Under The Mountain

The Town

The Hidden Fortress

1958, directed by Akira Kurosawa

The first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, was based on this film as a primary influence. But beyond that, this is another great film from Kurosawa, and another great release from the Criterion Collection.

Cousins

Synecdoche, New York

2008, directed by Charlie Kaufman. This is a personal favorite of mine, and partly because of that, I can’t say too much about it. It’s not a film for everyone, mostly because it’s a very difficult movie, with a lot of meanings on a lot of levels. Phillip Seymour Hoffman gives the performance of his career as a playwright trying to capture the sadness and infinitely mundane aspects of every day life in a new work that seems to be growing more and more epic (that’s putting it lightly) with each passing moment. I know that’s a very vague plot description, and I apologize. I’ll just put it this way: This is one of the bleakest and most depressing movies I’ve ever seen in my life, but it’s also one of the best films I’ve ever seen, and one of the most uplifting. Check out Roger Ebert’s review and an interview with writer/director Charlie Kaufman.

NON-FICTION:

Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise And Fall Of Jack Johnson

How Art Made The World

F For Fake

1975, directed by Orson Welles. This is the last major film by Welles, and it’s partially a documentary, focusing on the life of art forger Elmyr de Hory, and partially an essay work, dealing with the ideas of authorship and authenticity, and the value of art. This is a truly enchanting work, and for proof of that, check out the film’s introduction:

Mysteries Of The Garden Of Eden

Secret Origin: The Story Of DC Comics
