Abstract

HARDWARE AN ONGOING COST. Libraries are accustomed to using forty year old typewriters. They are used to keeping furniture so long that it turns antique before they can get rid of it. Library vehicles are legion for having been run into the ground. Why replace a vehicle when you can replace the engine instead Amortization, if it is used at all, means what happens to a thirtyyear mortgage thirty years later, except libraries use this same schedule for every piece of equipment in the building. The goal for the building, of course, is to get it on the National Register for Historic Places. A look through the Register will show you how remarkably successful we have been in achieving this goal.
