Library Registration Forms

Original Question: Greg Heid: At Newton County Library we are at the point where we are running out of storage space. Do any of you throw away your patron registration forms once you have placed the information in your circulation system or PINES? For those of you who do throw away the forms, have you ever wished that you would have kept the forms?
I am now 50/50 on the subject and looking for someone or some reason to push me to one side or the other of this question. Thanks
