Just been to my local library and discovered they have reduced the hire charge of DVDs. Now I am in the depths of so called sunny Cornwall so please check your local library and if they’re not doing it ask why.
It use to cost £3 a DVD per week. Now I not sure if I am odd but I don’t normally watch a film 7 times. So although it’s a small saving on Sky Box office and bigger saving then buying the DVD, it still meant that after getting a film for the kids and one for me it starts to mount up. I have just discovered my local library is running a pilot scheme of reducing the charge to 50p a film per day. If I get a film on a Saturday morning it is still 50p if I return it by 6pm on the following Monday. To me that is a huge saving and will mean less fighting on who gets to chose a film as we all can.
Before you shout that you want to see new films and not old films, you really should check the library out. Today there were copies of Inception, the latest Toy Story and Valentine’s Day to name a few. So it’s not all oldie worldy films thought they are there too if that floats your boat.
Apparently one of the things that will deem the pilot a success and keep the prices at 50p is how many hires they have. Bit obvious I suppose- The more the new 50p system is used the better chance it has of staying.
