Audio Visual Materials

The Upland Public Library maintains a variety of educational videos, audiobooks, and compact discs for children, teenagers, and adults. These collections are financially self-supporting; that is, the rental fee you pay per loan period enables the Library to purchase more titles. However, there is no rental fee for items identified as public service (PS) materials.
  • Adult or young adult patrons may rent titles from the adult and juvenile DVD collections; juvenile patrons may rent from the juvenile DVD collection. The rental fee is $2.00 per movie for one week.
  • Audiobooks on CD or pre-loaded to a Playaway® check out for 21 days. There is a rental fee of $2.00 for unabridged audiobooks. Rental fees for abridged or children's audiobooks are $1.00 per audiobook. Universal headsets and AAA batteries are available for $1.00 each at the Checkout Desk.
  • The Library has Chinese mainland television series on VCD available for checkout. There is a rental fee of $5.00 for 3 weeks.
