Holds Ratios

I’ve been lurking on a listserv that’s been discussing holds ratios.  Books still have an inordinate preference.  While I understand that DVDs and other media may have shorter checkouts, if we’ve learned one thing in the last year, it’s that we need to serve everyone in our service areas, even those who’d rather be couch potatoes – like me at times 😉 – and lazily watch movies instead of actively engaging their brains with books.  Yes, libraries as institutions of education are the public’s ideal, but they work just as well as publicly sponsored swap meets – effectively reducing costs (and material waste) for our whole community.
