Books Don't Get Hungry! And other book behaviors

Friendly library book care reminder: Do not feed or water library books . The turkey dinner and desserts are wonderful, but don't let the books fool you. They don't get hungry, but will practice growing penicillin with the tasty morsels.

During the holidays, they tend be shy and go into hiding. Keep this in mind when you leave the house - the book may disappear at your host's house.
