NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — One of the largest video collections on the East Coast is launching a fundraiser to try to stay open.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that Naro Expanded Video Archival Library will conduct the last-ditch campaign on Kickstarter on Aug. 28.

The store in Norfolk, Virginia, became a nonprofit last year. It must raise $25,000 in order to keep $11,000 in donations it’s so far received in 2017. The fundraiser’s outcome will determine Naro’s future.

The store boasts more than 42,000 titles. Video stores and nonprofits have been rapidly closing in the wake of video-streaming technology and mail-based services like Netflix.

An informal group of video rental establishments says the only video collection on the East Coast that’s larger than Naro’s is at 112 Video in Long Island, which has 47,000 titles.
