Videos and DVDs - Policy and Circulation Procedure

The Dayton Metro Library acquires both entertainment and informational videos / DVDs to satisfy a variety of viewing interests. Most locations of the Dayton Metro Library have video / DVD collections, however the size and selection at each location will vary and may change from day to day. Patrons may borrow video / DVD materials without special limits or rental fees.

With the exception of high demand titles, most videos / DVDs circulate for 21 days. High demand titles (i.e. entertainment movies less than one year old) are considered "Fast View" and circulate for 7 days. However, all videos / DVDs can be held for same day patron pick-up.

Patrons may use library video / DVD materials AS IS and must assume any damages to the tape / disc while in their possession. The Library accepts NO responsibility or financial liability for possible damage caused to any players (VCR or DVD) using library materials.

Patrons and/or organizations are responsible for returning all borrowed videos / DVDs in good operating condition. In the case of loss, theft, or damage, the patron or the organization is responsible for the full replacement cost.

Videos / DVDs may be returned in the bookdrop of any Dayton Metro, Troy-Miami County Public or Bradford Public systems. Items mistakenly returned incomplete, to other libraries, and/or to commercial rental establishments remain the responsibility of the borrower (including overdue and replacement charges) until such time as they are completely returned to the Library.

Library patrons are responsible for observing all U.S. copyright laws pertaining to proper usage and viewing of library videos / DVDs. Public viewings or performances are not permitted unless otherwise allowed by copyright laws. Teachers are advised to consult the Library's "face to face teaching exemption" checklist before showing videos / DVDs in their classrooms.
