Should libraries be charging for the hottest materials?

The Dallas Public Library thinks so. It's slapped a $5 surcharge on a short list of bestsellers and new-release DVDs. You can find more details here.

A slippery slope or a smart move?

And, FYI, the same story reports that the American Library Association has noted a ten percent uptick from 2001-2008 in both the number of visits to libraries and the number of items checked out.

Your thoughts?
