All students in the elementary school are frequent patrons of the library. Please remind your students to keep their books in a safe place away from pets and younger children. Store library books in their backpack when they are not reading them so they will be ready to return them to school. Keep food and drinks away from books. Make sure their hands are clean while reading. Turn the pages slowly and carefully so they don't get torn. Keep the books indoors so they are protected from sprinklers and bad weather. Keep the books in a gallon plastic bag so they are protected from crayon and pencil marks and especially from leaky water bottles while in their backpacks.
