A library may discard a book because no one refers to it for
many years......................

I once heard a GREAT story about a library patron who upon Checking-Out a
book noticed that it had not been out for over 90 years. The question was
asked "Since no one has used this book in so long, WHY have you kept it?"
The response, in a very dry tone, "Why sir, we have kept it JUST FOR YOU!!!"
