PBS Classic Video Films has been added to the city library's video collection.

The Friends of the Provo City Library said the collection includes seven Shakespearean plays, the Jewel in the Crown, Great Performances, Nova, The Living Planet, The Ascent of Man and The Brain.This $6,000 film series was obtained through a $2,000 grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The initial phase of fund raising begins in making video cards available to the community for $10. This allows the video-card holder to check out 20 videos from the Provo City Library.

A recent mailing to the Friends of the Provo City Library raised more than $500.

Those wishing to make donations toward the series project may send them to Video Classic Project, Friends of the Provo City Library, 13 N. First East, Provo, 84601.
