Kristine, I'd say we lose maybe 1 or 2 videos a year to theft, and 2 to 4
to damage or wearing out totally. We buy about 200-300 videos a year. They
check out for 7 days, and we usually have only the duds on the shelves for
more than a couple of days at a time. Most of what we have are how-to's,
and performances: things that come across better on video than print. Very
few popular movies.
