Just like in the morning class, the afternoon students have been learning all about how to take very good care of their library books. Last week I challenged you to ask a student the following questions:
- How should we turn a page in a book?
- How should we save our place in a book so we can finish it later?
- How should we carry a book?
- What you should do if you find a rip in your library book?
Here are some of the KPM students with the answers...
Always turn the pages of a book by the corners. This will prevent the pages from getting tears along the bottom edge!
Always use a bookmark to save your place in a book. If you don't have a bookmark, a piece of paper is another good choice. Don't use anything thicker than a piece of paper because it can hurt the spine of the book!
Always carry a book with both arms folded around it. We call this "hug a book"!
Always tell the librarian if you find a rip in a library book. Please don't try and fix it yourself! The tape you have at home is not made for books and can get yellowed and brittle over time. I have special tape and even special glue for fixing hurt books!
Thank you very much to my KPM helpers this week. I look forward to helping them select new books when they bring the others back on Monday!
