Vinyl fans in spin over New York Public Library's record sale

10 August 2013 Last updated at 02:45 BST

Vinyl fans are flocking to New York's Public Library for the Performing Arts in search of hidden gems and great bargains.

The library is clearing much-needed shelf space by selling 22,000 of its records - all of them duplicates - for $1 (64p) each.

Proceeds from the sale will help preserve the rest of the library's collection and fund new acquisitions.
