Naro Expanded Video reaches Kickstarter goal after 1 day

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- A last-ditch effort to help save one of the largest video collections on the East Coast met its fundraising goal in just a little more than 24 hours.

The Naro Expanded Video Archival Library in Norfolk has launched a Kickstarter campaign on Monday to keep its doors open. The video store became a nonprofit last year and needed to raise $25,000 to keep from closing.

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

The Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to go for 32 days total, but its organizers was able to meet its goal after only a single day.  Shortly before 10 a.m. Tuesday, the Kickstarter had raised $25,019 from 181 backers.
