A Well-Deserved Salute and Slow Adieu to VHS Format

Started as a Breeze But Now It's Windy
Seven years ago, the library launched its DVD film collection. VHS format was still the in-home standard for most of you; but then came DVDs. We tagged-teamed additions to VHS and DVD film collections for as long as we could; but since DVD is now your in-home standard, we no longer purchase films in VHS format. The good news is we have already started to replace continuously popular VHS titles with their DVD counterparts.

Adieu Adult VHS
Over the next few months we'll slowly withdraw titles from our adult VHS film collection to make room for -- you guessed it -- DVDs. Small groups of withdrawn titles will be value-priced and made available for purchase at the Friends of the Library Book Store located in our Community Center complex. If you'd like "first dibs" on a title we own, sign up with the Friends and they'll contact you when the title is available for sale. The Friends Book Store is open Mondays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Proceeds from book store sales support specialized library programs and services.
