Care of Books

Remember that when you use or borrow books from the library you are using someone else’s property. You should take good care of them. Lost or damaged books will have to be paid for (full price). New or second hand books in very good or excellent condition can be given instead of payment, as this may be cheaper than paying the full cost.

Keep food and drink away from books.

Please don’t write on them.

Use a BOOKMARK – Bookmarks are available from the Issue Desk.
Do not bend books back…you might break the binding (cover).

Don’t get them wet

Try to keep books upright
Do not try to jam them in, loosen the book rest if you need to
Do not push any other books down the back of the shelves

If you try and stick to these few rules, books will last longer, and you won’t find yourself with a bill asking you to pay for the cost of replacement.
REMEMBER…Make sure you don’t get done for cruelty to books!
