  • DVD Media Box

    The DVD Media Boxes are currently unavailable due to our move to a new library system. Our staff are working to get them back online, but currently you are unable to check-out or return items to the media boxes. If you have media box items that you need to return please bring them to the desk at the Pasadena Central Library and we will remove them from your account. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on getting all of our services integrated into our new library system.

    DVD Media BoxChecking out a movie has never been easier! You can now select, check out and return popular movie DVDs at the Library’s two new self-serve "media boxes" located at Central Library and Hastings Branch Library. Similar to the Red Box with one exception - check out is free with your Pasadena/Glendale library card.
