Our public library circulated 1.4 million items last year. 30% were DVDs
and videos. Our Popular Materials dept. houses the feature films and
fiction novels. We purchase no more than 5 copies per DVD no matter what
the holds queue. For TV series, we buy no more than 2 copies. We do have
an 'art house' category and do purchase international and independent
films and our customers thank us for it :)

With bestselling books, the ratio is 1 book for every 5 holds.
