SOLS DVD Pool
About the DVD Pool
The DVD pool, formerly under the administration of SOLS staff and now under the administration of Hastings Highlands Public Library, was created to give member libraries the opportunity to provide or supplement a DVD collection to service their communities. This collection is intended to extend the information, education, and recreation resources of member libraries through the DVD medium.
Membership for the DVD Pool runs from January 1st to December 31st. The membership fee covers the cost of new DVDs, cases, labels, cards, as well as the cost of the physical rotation of the blocks. Due to changes in the delivery of the DVD Pool, the cost for the blocks in 2020 is still to be determined and will be posted ASAP.

Rotation Schedule & Block Lists
The next rotation is currently set for November. This will be the final rotation of 2020. You may notice new titles on your list from 2020 - these are being added and shipped out during the next rotation.
Currently, all of the block lists can be found on Google Drive. These lists are view-only, so all changes will have to be made through HHPL staff, but you can print off a copy if you need a clean list. If you notice an error with the current block list - an item that you did not receive or is missing from the block, or an item that is missing from the list - please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The SOLS Courier will no longer be able to pick up and deliver materials, so DVD Pool Blocks will now have to be shipped via purolator. This fee is covered by the DVD Pool Administration, you will just need to charge it to the Hastings Highlands Public Library purolator account. Our account number is 4861736, and you can follow these instructions on how to charge your shipment to us.
An item in my block is missing or damaged. What do I do with it?
Please email us at email@example.com to notify us of the title so we can remove it from the list. If the item is older and has been in the block for a while, we will simply remove the title from the block. If the item is popular or recently added, we will look to replace it.
Is there a cost to replace an item that has gone missing or been damaged?
Generally the replacement fees are covered by the SOLS DVD Pool funds, but if missing or damaged items became a regular occurrence with a particular library, we may ask that library to cover the cost.
