Book Care

Please help us keep our library books looking new and shiny by following the following advice-

  • Keep books away from liquids and food.
  • Don't draw or color in library books.
  • Don't tear pages or use scissors in library books.
  • Wash your hands before reading your library book.
  • Keep books away from babies and pets.
  • Keep your books in a safe place. The best place to leave them when you are not holding them is your backpack high up on a shelf.
  • Don't put any liquids in your backpack with your books.
  • Don't peel off the barcode or any labels.
  • Don't let your friends borrow your library books. They are checked out to you!


If something happens to your book please come and let us know right away. We may be able to repair it. If we cannot, you will have to pay for either the damage or the cost of the book.
