News from the Pierson Library

IndieFlix new streaming video service now available at the Pierson Library! Pierson patrons may now access thousands of independent films, shorts, and documentaries on their computers, Apple and Android tablets, and most mobile devices.  Users may search for titles or by genre to find movies that will appeal to them. Each title includes a text summary, a listing of the cast, and awards won. Library Director Kip Roberson noted “This partnership allows library users in Shelburne to see films they normally would not have access to. That is what IndieFlix is all about: connecting filmmakers and films to viewers.”

IndieFlix is easy to use. Simply go to the library’s website at www.piersonlibrary.org and click on the IndieFlix link found in the list of databases on the left hand side of the page or follow the streaming video link under the eLibrary tab at the top of the page. Next, create an IndieFlix account using your library barcode number. Once you’ve created your account and validated your email, you’re ready to login to IndieFlix and can start watching award-winning documentaries, short films, web series, animated, children’s, Sci-fi, political, and sports films anywhere anytime for free!

If you don’t have a library card, stop in and sign up. A Pierson Library card will give you access to books, DVDs, eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, research databases, over 500 online educational courses, language learning software and much, much more.  If you have any questions about IndieFlix or any other library services, just call us at 985-5124 or drop in for assistance.
