Market Rasen library is showing itself to be a well-used multi-use centre and has now got some more good news for DVD borrowers.

Library users have for a long time been able to borrow DVDS of films for a week-long period, as well as documentaries and children’s programmes.

But now, film lovers will also be able to take out the latest releases as soon as they become available on DVD.

“We believe we are the only outlet now for DVD rental in the town,” said Cultural Services Advisor Mel Fenwick.

“These new releases are just £2 for two days, with the other films remaining at £1 for the week and children’s series just 50p for the week.”

And as well as books and DVDS, the library has a number of computers available to use - and they can also help you get online.

Volunteer Shelley Clayton is on hand every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon to give help and guidance.

The computers also have free access to family history site Ancestry, British newspapers, DVLA practice papers and digital magazines.

And for those interested in the past, historic Market Rasen Mail are available to view on microfilm - covering 1856 to 1950, with the exception of 1896 and 1912, and from 1987 onward.

Rase Heritage Society also holds regular drop-in mornings at the library on the first Tuesday of the month, as well its regular evening meetings on the second Thursday of the month.

Another regular visitor to the library is Alison Seddon from Riverside Training, who can help jobseekers with information, training and CV writing.

“We certainly have a lot going on at the library,” added Mel.

“And we even lend out books too.”
