DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The library at UMD is offering over 4 thousand VHS tapes free for the taking Tuesday through Friday in the 4th floor rotunda reading room. The tapes feature a variety of subject matter including Shakespeare, dance, health, education and art. Some feature films are also included in the giveaway. Since VHS is becoming a dated format, most of the actively used films have been replaced by DVDs. The Kathryn A. Martin Library previously sponsored a successful giveaway of its vinyl LP collection and is hoping to find good homes for the VHS material as well.
