Library giveaways
Our local city library (Sheboygan, WI) today gave away older, obsolete books and stuff.

The audio cassette racks were swamped.

But I got...

Two coffee table books, one with baby animals, and one showing commercial airplanes and helicopters.

And...

On VHS videotape, the complete Carl Sagan's "Cosmos." :woohoo:

Going to see if I can transfer the tapes to DVD.

2. Whoo hoo!
It works!

I'll be putting the tapes on to DVD, for the next couple days.
(I have a VHS machine and a DVD recorder.)

3. Nice catch.
:)

I hope you can successfully transfer those tapes. Those are definitely worth saving.
