The Nut Job

Here's a little something you might not know.  The Hoover Public Library usually has hot new DVD releases the day they come out.  Sometimes, though, we have to wait 28 days before we can give them to the public.  You may have noticed a similar phenomenon on Netflix or at Redbox.  Some studios require that lending agencies wait 28 days after the official release date before they begin circulating their DVDs.  The Nut Job is one of these titles.  It was released to the public yesterday, but it won't be available through the library until May 13. Nutty, huh?

Jackie Robinson Day

Grab your 42. Today is Jackie Robinson Day!  Robinson made his Major League baseball debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947, breaking the color barrier.  Since 2004, players don jersey number 42 on April 15 as a tribute to a great athlete and history maker.  Find out more about the Hall of Famer with these books.
