Damaged or Lost Book Policy

Accidents happen. Puppies chew, juice containers leak in backpacks, younger siblings use them for creative art projects, and books get left on the playground the day it rains or maybe they fly off on vacation. Most children are responsible.   If a book becomes accidentally damaged, we stress the responsibility to report and, if necessary, to replace a book which gets damaged while in their care.  Depending on the type of damage, there may be a small fine. If a book accidentally rips, please do not attempt to repair it at home. We use special book tapes and glues, which resist heat and won’t discolor.  Return the book with a note and we will repair it. If a book becomes damaged beyond use, you will be billed for the replacement cost. You may replace the book, provided the same type is replaced. Please check with us before replacing a hardback edition, most of our books are library editions, meant to take heavy use, and not the trade editions sold in bookstores. If major damage occurs, please return the book with a note  then we will know that you know the book is damaged and will need to be replaced.   If your child returns a book damaged beyond use and you are not aware of an obligation, borrowing privileges are withheld until it is paid for.
