Holiday Season Escapes, “Binge Box” Style

Holiday Season Escapes, “Binge Box” Style

By Caroline Tirona, Library Aide, Dolley Madison Library

Despite being called the “most wonderful time of the year,” winter is often a time of merry chaos for most of us as holiday shopping and activities take over our day-to-day lives. This winter, we challenge you to take a pause and enjoy what truly makes the season wonderful – spending quality time with friends, family or by yourself. What better way to do that then with a movie marathon?

To make your movie night a little easier, check out FCPL's collection of Binge Boxes! Despite its name, a Binge Box isn’t really a box at all, but rather a collection of films and programs all centered around a particular theme, genre or actor. Currently FCPL offers 150+ different Binge Boxes and we aren’t kidding when we say there is a Binge Box for everyone.

Getting friends together and can’t decide which Tom Cruise movie to watch? Get the “Terrific Tom Cruise” collection. Want to support a friend who got dumped before New Year’s and needs somebody to cry with? Grab ice cream and the “You’ll Ugly Cry” Binge Box. Will you be travelling for the holidays? Check-out why you should “Never Travel with Tom Hanks” before you go. As always, you can never go wrong with one of our many holiday themed collections!

Whatever you end up choosing, we hope our Binge Boxes bring you the rest and relaxation you need this holiday season. To check out the complete list of available Boxes in the FCPL collection, visit
