NMPL is thrilled to announce our brand new Foreign Films collection! This growing collection will feature interesting and award winning foreign films from across the globe. Watching foreign films allows one to learn more about other countries' customs and cultures, and promotes understanding. NMPL is very grateful to the generous contributions of David & Shirley Rogers who have made this possible. Stop by the new shelf and check out a foreign film today!
