Out With the Wall Clocks

I don't know about you, but I have not worn a wrist watch for many years. We use our mobile devices to check the time. I always dreaded daylight savings in Milwaukee because we had so many clocks and electronic devices that required manual resetting. Since we moved to DC, we only need to change the appliances. The Library of Congress has - dare I say - hundreds of wall clocks scattered all over the three main buildings. So it made sense to finally rid ourselves of all the wall clocks  that are not considered public spaces. They were rarely adjusted for daylight savings anyway. So it was good to see the electricians make their way around the building to remove all the useless devices to be replaced by a simple cover. Wonder what else we can get rid of? What happens to all that junk?
