Mr. Wiggle's Book by Paula Craig is shared with our youngest students to teach them about proper treatment of library books.

Have you ever checked out a library book that had crayon on the pages?  ...or somebody else's dinner on the cover?  Our library materials belong to all of us are Riddle School.  Caring for our books mean they last longer and look more appealing.

The "book hospital" is where books go for cleaning and healing.

Our children are introduced to book care guidelines at the beginning of the school year.  Some stories about book care are shared and students see the "book hospital" where sick books go for healing.  Unfortunately, we have had victims of rain, dogs, glue, and crayons in the book hospital.  Students are disappointed to see books that have been ruined, including a book about snakes and a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerers' Stone.

What Happened to Marian's Book? by Brook Berg is another story about book care.

We review helpful hints for book care thoughout the school year.  Additionally, parents can assist by reinforcing book care guidelines taught at school.  These include:

  • Keep books dry.
  • Keep books away from the table when eating.
  • Protect books from pets and small children.
  • Read with clean hands.
  • Use a bookmark rather than bending the page corner or laying a book open face down.
  • Keep your books in a safe place at home.  Your backpack is a good option.
  • Let the librarian know if there is a problem with a book so she can fix it.
