The Decline Of The DVD

I got an interesting email from the New York Public Library:

The New York Public Library is changing the way it provides DVDs to the public. Beginning on January 28, the Library will offer browsable, circulating DVD collections at 28 carefully-selected “hub” branches. Patrons can either visit those specific branches to browse and borrow DVDs, or use the Catalog to browse the Library’s full DVD collection online. Reserved DVDs can then be delivered to any New York Public Library branch.

[. . .]

There are many reasons why the Library decided to make this change, including significant decreases in DVD circulation and changes in the market (fewer DVDs are being produced). Still, we understand that this will be an adjustment for patrons, and we welcome your feedback, thoughts, questions, and concerns.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

The NYPL offers access to a streaming service. My god! There’s a ton of stuff there to watch. I’ve yet to have the time to see any of it.
