Television shows at the library

Last year Alachua County Library District made the choice to add American television shows to its DVD collection with the addition of Breaking Bad, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, True Blood, and The Walking Dead. Since that time there have been many titles added to our collection, which focuses on current, well-reviewed, highly acclaimed and popular shows that air on premium or extended cable stations.

Check out some of our newest additions to the collection and be on the lookout for new titles as they come in!
