by Brandi Scardilli
In the beginning, libraries lent books. Fast-forward to the present day, and patrons can borrow all kinds of things from the library, including books, ebooks, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs. The newest available format for patrons is streaming video, which is quickly gaining traction in public libraries across the country. Several librarians shared their experiences with streaming video lending, so institutions thinking about implementing their own programs know what to expect.
