Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Film Room, year unknow.

“The Library was one of the first in the nation to circulate 16 mm films. To keep the films in good shape, special inspection machines operated by staff in white gloves were required to hunt for bad splices or breaks after every loan.”
