To Check Out Movies
In order to check out any of the library’s movies, a valid library card in good standing is required. Adults over the age of 18 can check out 5 DVDs and 5 videocassettes on one library card for 7 days. Items may be renewed one time as long as the items are not overdue or on hold for another patron.

You can renew items by calling 972-216-6220 (Mesquite Main Library) or 972-681-0465 (Mesquite North Branch Library); by accessing “My Account” through the online catalog; or by stopping at the checkout desk at either library facility. For renewals, you will need the library card number that was used to check the item out and, if the renewal is done online, you will also need your PIN. Overdue fines for DVDs and videocassettes are $1.00 per day.

The Mesquite Public Library also offers free streaming videos through Freegal Movies and Television. These are free to watch with a valid library card in good standing for patrons 18 and older, and teens 14-17 whose parents have signed their card applications for library internet access. Videos can be watched on your computer through your preferred browser, or on your phone, tablet, or other mobile device by using the free Freegal Movies and Television app. Once you start streaming a video, you can watch it as much as you want for 48 hours. After the 48 hours have expired, you will not be able to access that particular video for 6 months.
