Submitter: During the heyday of VCRs, this looks like it was a handy resource and was checked out frequently. Lots of diagrams & very detailed instructions were likely helpful, especially when VCRs were really expensive. But now that most people don’t have VCRs anymore, this book has sat on the shelf since 2008. And it was definitely overdue to be weeded.
We still have a few children’s VHS tapes in our collection because they are relatively indestructible compared to DVDs. But someday, these will disappear as well and only the library elders & former video store clerks will have memories of work generated by patrons who were unkind about rewinding.
Holly: Library Elders! Good one! This is definitely a weeder. Just because you can keep your VCR alive doesn’t mean there are any tapes left to play in it. (*Note to self: get wedding video put on DVD…)
