Psst. Wanna know a secret? The majority of public libraries have a vast DVD collection - new and classic; major studio releases and indie films. Seriously, they have 'em and just like the books, they're free. However, don't expect to find Blu-ray or HD DVD titles just yet, not in
New York 's public library system at least. We can see where David Callahan of the Donnel Library in
Manhattan is coming from when he states that it is simply too big of an investment to be wrong. Many libraries are having a tough time these days with lower funding due to lower demand so we don't expect public libraries to stock high-def titles just yet. Once they do though, you can bet we're going to dig up our old library card and pray there isn't an old missing book charge.
