Book Care

Our library is full of LOTS of great books to read this year! I need you and your child's help to make sure the books stay in good shape so everyone can enjoy them. Here are some tips for you to review with your child about how student leaders take care of library books. Support from home is GREATLY appreciated!!


  • Hands need to be clean and dry when you are handling books.
  • Protect books from the rain. Please use plastic bags or backpacks to transport books to and from school. Water is the #1 villain when it comes to books because they grow mold after they get wet.
  • Always keep food and drinks away from books.
  • Please do not write or color in our books.
  • Keep books away from younger siblings and pets, in a special place, to avoid scribbling, writing, and damage.
  • Keep books off of the floor to avoid walking on them or pets getting a hold of them.
  • Find a special place  at home for your library books or keep them in your backpack so you know where they are when it is time to return them.
  • Slowly turn pages to avoid ripping them.
  • Use a bookmark instead of turning over the edge of the page (no dog eared pages please!)
  • Do not pick off plastic film or stickers.
  • Do NOT swap books with anyone! The person checking out the book is responsible for the book.
  • If you have an accident with a book, please bring it to the LMC and, if possible, we will repair it. Please do not try to repair books yourself!
  • Return books to the homeroom teacher's book return box or to the LMC's book drop.
