Taking Care of Our Books

1. Find a safe place for your library book - but don't forget where it is!

2.  Keep your books dry - especially watch out for those leaky water bottles in your backpack

3.  Keep your books away from small children and pets

4.  Keep your books clean and away from sticky foods

5.  Please do not draw on or rip pages in your library book
