Borrow a Roku and Stream Movies at Home

Roku 2

Stream popular movies and more to your television over WiFi. A wireless Internet connection and either an HDMI or component (red/yellow/white) input on the TV are needed to use the Roku Streaming Media Device. The library’s Roku kit provides the rest. Just plug in the Roku to the TV, connect it to Wi-Fi, select your entertainment, and start watching.

Visit FDL to check out a Roku or call the library to reserve a device. (Sorry, all holds must be placed through library staff and not in the online catalog.)

The loan period for the Roku is 7 days and is not renewable. Rokus are checked out from and must be returned to the Second Floor Information Desk.
