No, we're not! We've come to this decision after much thought. Basically it comes down to cost. Think of the vast number of current and past shows that are now available on DVD. A season set can cost anywhere from $30. all the way up to about $90. Multiply that by 5 or 6 or more seasons, then it gets pretty pricey.
If one disk is damaged or lost, then the individual disk cannot be replaced without buying the whole season set! This is also a primary reason for not offering to get these items for you on interlibrary loan. These items have limited availability around the NH, and, if they are in another library's collection, the library often doesn't want to loan them out due to their costliness.
What we're doing here is to complete any series that we had already started. For instance, if we had Hogan's Heroes, seasons 1 and 2, then we would continue to order the other seasons as they became available. We also will purchase some of the literature based classics that are produced by PBS and the BBC. An example would be a Jane Austen book such as Emma that has been made into a mini-series.
Of course, if you have the complete I Love Lucy on DVD (all 9 seasons) and you wish to donate it, then we would love to accept it!
