Caring for Your Books

  • Always wash and dry your hands before handling library books.
  • Never eat or drink or have food near library books. 1
  • Keep pencils, pens, markers and other school supplies away from library books at all times.
  • When taking notes from a library book, keep your paper on the table or desk, not on the book itself.
  • Turn pages carefully using the top corner.
  • Always use a bookmark to mark your place, NEVER dog-ear the pages and NEVER place it down on the open pages - it damages the spine.
  • Keep your library books DRY and SAFE!
    • Put books in a waterproof bag when you carry them between school and home in the same backpack as snacks and drinks.
    • When it's raining, put your books in your backpack where they'll stay clean & dry.
    • Carry books securely to keep them from falling on the ground.
  • Keep all library materials away from pets and younger siblings.
  • At home, pick a safe spot to keep library books and return books to the safe spot after each reading.
  • If you notice damaged library materials, please tell Mrs. Robbins, Mrs. Jones or Mrs. Asaro immediately.
