On the latest episode of the Pint and Click Podcast, Dave, Tony, Kristyn, and Joel discuss and recommend media that is currently available on hoopla. As you may have read here previously, hoopla is a digital service available to all DPPL cardholders that allows you to download or stream up to 10 ebooks, audiobooks, movies, comics, TV shows or albums each month. Topics discussed include the 1995 Abel Ferrara film The Addiction; the soundtrack to last year's Disney motion picture Moana; the DC comic Green Lanterns Vol. 1: Rage Planet, written by Geoff Johns; the 2006 Guillermo del Toro film Pan's Labyrinth; and Ghost In The Shell, the original 1995 anime film directed by Mamoru Oshii. Take a listen below:

Quick. Describe your library in just three words. Today on the 3rd episode of People of DPPL, library staff take a shot.
Do you love the library? Are you looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity in Des Plaines?
Two library board trustee positions are coming to an end in June.
One is a three-year full term and one is a two-year replacement-term position.
We are compiling a list of possible candidates to submit to Mayor Matt Bogusz for consideration to fill those vacant seats. Unlike some other communities where trustees are elected, DPPL trustee positions are mayoral appointments. If you would like to be considered:
Please send a cover letter and resume/vita to library board president Dr. Greg Sarlo, at firstname.lastname@example.org and Des Plaines Mayor Matt Bogusz email@example.com by Friday May 12, 2017.
DPPL board members must be residents of incorporated Des Plaines.
Did you know the library delivers materials to folks in nursing homes, retirement facilities and rehab centers?
We even deliver to folks in their homes if they are unable to get to the library due to health or disability. Once a month they receive a bag of books, movies, and/or music.
We'll bring anything the library offers, all personally selected for them based on their tastes and preferences. It’s like Christmas comes every month.
