Re: VHS on metal shelving?

Speaking of refrigerator magnets (re: VHS tapes conversations), our
library system is going to start using receipt printers (rather than
date dues). The staff will be handing out frig magnets to encourage
patrons to place their 'date due receipts' on a frig or file cabinet,
etc. My staff is concerned about the videos being ruined by these small
magnets. They also believe our small magnetic badge holders are ruining
videos... Any thoughts / concerns / experience with these incidental
magnets causing havoc at your circ desk??? Thanks for any input -
