Ten Tips for Taking Care of Textbooks:

1. Know that you are fully responsible for the books issued to you.

2.  Report any damages within 24 hours of checkout or may be charged for the damages.

3.  Cover your books right away and write your name clearly on the inside of the covers.  (Paper bags work really well.)

4.  Don’t tape covers directly to the books and do not use cloth or sticky laminate covers. 

5.  Avoid sharing a locker and or books.  Regardless of the books you end up turning in at the end of the year, you are responsible for the ones issued to you from the library.

6.  Don’t leave your books behind in your classes for any reason.

7.  Don’t leave your books in your locker unused for long periods of time.  One word- MOLD.

8.  Don’t bend any book past a 180 degree angle.

9.  When working with groups in your classes, check to be sure the books you pick up and leave with are yours.

10.  Respect your books and the opportunities for growth they offer.
