Library Lost&Found #4: Happy Birthday!

Tip of the Day: Need some book suggestions? Check out my reviews on LiveJournal and Rochester & Genesee Valley Parent Magazine

I've mentioned library donations before -- those boxes of books, DVDs, & CDs that patrons bring us to resell in our Friends store. We get some awesome new materials that bring in cash flow so I can keep offering programs like my upcoming Hallow-Teen Psych Night (my favorite YA program of the year!).

But sometimes you can tell when a donor is merely cleaning out a family member's house -- or their own -- and just can't bear to throw anything away. So they figure they'll bring their crap to the library.

Because really, as much as outdated technology makes me sad in some ways, we can't easily sell VHS tapes anymore.

You know what we really can't sell? VHS home videos.

You know what we really really can't sell?

Thank the lords they also gave us the sequel. I didn't want to be left hanging!

That is too funny! I wonder that they'd want to give those away in the first place. Hope they transferred them to digital media.
