I may be off the mark here, but, while much interesting discussion
has come forth, was not the original question do libraries "rent"
video cassettes. While patrons often confuse the terms lend and rent
I would think within the profession the definition of 'rent' assumes
charging $$ for the use of. And I doubt many public libraries do
charge a rental fee. Am I wrong?
