Libraries Top Netflix In DVD Rentals
DON GONYEA, host:
Good morning. I'm Don Gonyea.
Many people who watch a movie this weekend will simply open the Netflix envelope, but even more of you will head to the public library. A new survey shows that libraries are lending out 2.1 million DVDs a day. That compares to two million daily rentals for Netflix. Blockbuster comes in at 1.2 million. Yet another reason to get a library card. Warning: late fees do apply. And we still recommend the book for that college paper.
It's MORNING EDITION.
