Go mental for movies at the Library

For the first part of March, the Nakusp Library will be accepting donations of DVDs and videos -- anything goes.

Do you know those old movies that have been in the back of your closet for years, or at least since Christmas?

And the ones on the shelf that were too awful/bland/terrifying/infantile/serious to ever watch again? Well, we’d love to give them a chance at a fresh start at the library!

For the first part of March, we’ll be accepting donations of DVDs and videos — anything goes (EXCEPT, sorry, home-recorded movies and government- or company-issued freebies). What we decide not to add to our our library’s collection will go out for sale on March 12 through 17, as a fundraiser for the library. DVDs will be a steal at $3 each, and VHS films will be only $2. Could updating your home video collection be any easier or cheaper?

As a special way to celebrate, we’ll also be selling cheap popcorn (it may be green) on Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17. Green popcorn our way of saying “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!” and “Long live the movies!” in one bag of deliciousness.

And if supporting the library isn’t motivation enough to go through your old movie collection, here’s another one for you: we would be happy to issue tax receipts for your donations — $3 for each DVD, and $2 for each VHS film, with a minimum donation of value of $20. Please let us know you’d like a tax receipt when you’re donating your movies and we’ll make sure we get all the information we need.

Still reading this article instead of throwing aside the paper to dig through your old movie collection?

Here’s one more idea to motivate you: imagine the back of your closet emptied of clutter, and the shelf cleared of everything but the cinematic gems. Imagine all the space you can make for the new movies you’ll be picking up from our Movie Sale!

If you have any questions, please email (bna@netidea.com) or phone the library (3363). We’re open from 12 to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m.
