Potential Yearly Savings with a 3M Library Security System

As you can see by this chart, many libraries can save enough after one year to pay for an entire security system. And more.

Replacement Cost/Item Collection Size (in volume)
10,000 25,000 50,000 100,000
$15 $4,500 $11,250 $22,500 $45,000
$25 $7,500 $18,750 $37,500 $75,000
$35 $10,000 $26,250 $52,500 $105,000
$45 $13,500 $33,750 $67,500 $135,000
(assumes a 3% per year materials loss rate, which is fairly typical among libraries without security systems)
