We are pleased to announce that we now have 5 Roku Ultra streaming media boxes available to check out from the library! You won’t need to worry about finding yourself with nothing to watch in your hotel room or Summer rental while you have one of these as we have pre-loaded them with a wide variety of free streaming services featuring a rotating selection of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and more! You’ll enjoy channels like The Roku Channel (“Godzilla”, “Whiplash”, “Drive”), Crackle (“SuperMansion”, “Seinfeld”, “Pineapple Express”), TubiTV (“Monsters”, “School of Rock”, “A Most Wanted Man”), SnagFilms (“Charade”, “Olivia’s Puzzle”), PopcornFlix (“Short Term 12”, “Stagecoach”), PBS (“The Great British Baking Show”, “Masterpiece”), TheCW (“Riverdale”, “Arrow”, “Supernatural”), CBS News, and many more! Users will also be able to view materials on the Hoopla and Qello apps by signing in with their library cards.
Avalon property owners and renters aged 18 and up are eligible to borrow a Roku. They can have it for one week, with one renewal possible as long as no one is waiting for one. Each Roku includes a remote, power cord, HDMI cable, and set-up instructions. So what are you waiting for, stop by the library and start streaming!
