Attention book and video lovers

submitted by holleric@augsburg.edu

Lindell Library is withdrawing hundreds of videos from its VHS collection. These are titles that have not been checked out a single time in the last 5 years (most have not been checked out in the past 10+ years). If you still own a VCR and are interested, please help yourself to any of our discarded titles – they will be on display in the Learning Commons all week.

We also have hundreds of bookends that could use a good home and these will be on a table near the VHS cassettes. The bookends are all off white in color, metal with a magnetic base to hold them in place, and measure 5″ deep x 9″ high. See photo at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HXUOy8XrYpogI2bg59MQHhL377FjWPbo. Help yourself!
