The audiovisual items in our library get a lot of use and they show it! CDs, both music and books on CD are a wonderful resource, but they are so easily damaged the staff here @ FML spend a great deal of time cleaning off fingerprints and repairing scratches. Check out the article by our Director, Lynda Sudlow, in the December 4, 2007 issue of The Notes. We’re looking for help from our patrons to keep the FML audiovisual materials in great shape so everyone who would like to, gets the same chance to listen or watch.
Some hints to great care:
Keep the A/V items stored in their container when not being used.
Handle the items by the edges to prevent leaving fingerprints
Don’t store them in your automobile, they are sensitive to temperature
Lastly, let us know if there are specific titles you’d like to watch or listen to. We are also open to suggestions for additions to the collection.
