Double Apostrophe Catastrophe from a Library

My friend Natalie was horrified to find this double apostrophe catastrophe at the Medford Public Library.

Some style guides recommend using an apostrophe in abbreviations such as DVD, but since the videos has a catastrophe in it, I'm going to assume that DVD's is a mistake too.

Thanks, Natalie!

But can the apostrophes be returned? If not, they should.

Um yeah, an apostrophe should be used when a portion of a word is removed...such as videotapes = video's...
