Denver Library Allows Movie Downloads

The Denver Public Library on Tuesday became the first library to allow patrons to download movies and television programs over the Internet to their PCs or portable media players, Home Media Retailing magazine reported. The initial films made available by the library online are limited to a few classic films, including Fellini's 8 1/2, Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief, and D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation. The software is timed to void the movies after the lending period is over. The Denver library's Michelle Jeske said, "Downloadable video gives our patrons 24/7 online access to exceptional films and allows [us] to have this type of format without the space, handling, and damage issued normally associated with DVDs and tapes."
