Your Very Own Film Festival and New Nooks for Vacation Books

This summer, the Cambridge Public Library has something new for patrons looking for summer entertainment, no matter whether you’re vacationing or staycationing.

If you’re planning summer fun at home with friends and family and need a break between wiffle ball games, check out the new IndieFlix movie streaming service from the Cambridge Public Library.

Provided with funding from the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library, IndieFlix is the latest database available to patrons of the Cambridge Public Library. It offers more than 3,500 first-run films, including those currently at film festivals, past award winners and many films that will never be released on DVD or Blu-Ray. And it’s available anywhere! Once you sign up, you can watch IndieFlix movies from any Internet-enabled computer, smartphone, or tablet with a Web browser.

For those of you planning a getaway, but still having trouble fitting all your summer reads into the suitcase, don’t forget that you can check out a Nook from the Cambridge Public Library. With support from the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library, Nooks are available at all branches and the main library. 

And now, the new sleeker Nook Glowlights are also available at the Q&A desk and Teen Room at the main library--perfect for a sunny day at the beach or the pool--and they’re loaded with brand new titles for adults and teens.
