The Carpeted Library.
Garrett, Joe B.
The two main advantages for using carpeting are noise control and low maintenance costs. Carpet reduces floor instigated or impact noises and is psychologically dignifying. Maintenance costs for carpet are less than for other types of floor coverings because carpet requires less surface preparation. The initial cost of carpet is little, if any, more than that of other floor coverings. Carpeting can be used quickly and economically as a replacement floor covering in older libraries. (GM)
