Highland Park Library Offers New Streaming Services

Acorn TV Logo Image
Learn from top professors and watch British TV shows and films with two new streaming services for Highland Park Harvey R. “Bum” Bright Library patrons. 

With The Great Courses Library Collection, patrons may view over 150 of the most popular courses taught by the world’s top professors. With hundreds of videos on subjects ranging from photography to physics, astronomy to art, history to health, and everything in between, there is sure to be a course of interest. Each lesson is about 30 minutes in length — tune in to test out any lesson or course for the first few minutes, or for the entire course.

Acorn TV streams world-class mysteries, dramas, and comedies from Britain and beyond, including a full slate of original and exclusive programming, such as Doc Martin, Midsomer Murders, Inspector George Gently, Vera, Murdoch Mysteries, and more. With thousands of hours of commercial-free programming and new shows added weekly, there’s always something to watch. 

The Great Courses Library Collection and Acorn TV, both through Record Books, can be enjoyed on a laptop or desktop computer at or with mobile devices through the RBdigital app, which is available for Android and iOS. At the website or in the app, after setting up an RBDigital Account, patrons can use their Highland Park Library card number and PIN to check out a pass for a week’s worth of access to one of the streaming services. Currently, the Library will provide one pass per card holder per calendar month.

Highland Park Library cards are free for residents of the Town of Highland Park. Please visit the Library, located in the Highland Park Town Hall at 4700 Drexel Drive, during business hours to fill out a library card application. The Library is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
