      Mrs. Jacobson's Tips for  
    TAKING CARE OF YOUR BOOKS


    So many books, so little time . . .

    but you must take some time to take care of your books!


    Some things you should and shouldn't do:

    Make sure your hands are clean when you handle a book.

    Turn the pages carefully so that you don't tear them.

    Use a bookmark.
    Don't fold corners of the pages.

    Don't place the book face-down when it's open - this will ruin the spine.

    Don't write in your book.
    The book already has words - you don't need to add any!

    Don't eat or drink and read at the same time.
    You don't need to feed your book!

    Put your book in a safe place when you're not reading.
    Don't let pets or baby brothers/sisters get a hold of your book!

    If something happens to your book - don't try to fix it yourself. Bring it to the librarian and tell her what happened so she knows how to fix it.
    What do you do if a book is damaged? Tell your librarian.

    Then, others can enjoy them too!
