Out of this world

The library has many Hugo "Best Dramatic Presentation" winners and nominees on DVD. The Hugo Awards are given every year for the best science fiction or fantasy works and achievements of the previous year. The award is named after Hugo Gernsback, the founder of the pioneering science fiction magazine Amazing Stories. Hugo Awards have been presented every year since 1953, except 1954.

And some old movies as well


The Friends of the Devereaux Library provide funding to purchase classic movies for our library collection. We use a variety of sources to assemble our want list of movies. One of our favorite sources is the AFI (American Film Institute.) The most recent AFI list 100 Years...100 Movies 10th anniversary edition was unveiled on June 20th, 2007. The program is scheduled to be repeated on BRAVO Friday, November 9, Saturday, November 10, Friday, December 28, and December 29.
