Book Care at Hampton Street Library

During our library time, we talk about the proper care and handling of library books. The following rule are emphasized:

  • Please do not write, scribble, color, cut or paste in library books
  • Keep library books away from pets that chew
  • Read to and share books with little brothers and sisters but please do not let them use library books as coloring books
  • Always use a book mark to save your place
  • Wash your hands before reading a book
  • If a book is damaged, please do not attempt to repair it yourself. Please bring it back to the Library so we can use the special materials required to fix it properly
  • Turn the page form the top corner to avoid tears
  • When you are not reading your library book, keep it in your backpack
