||Damaged Book Policy
Accidents happen. Puppies chew (usually new) books, 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 fly off on vacation. Most children are responsible and 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.
If a book page accidentally rips, please do not attempt to repair it at home. We use special book tapes and glue, 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 or a book is lost, you will be billed for the replacement cost. You may send cash only. Once the bill is taken care of, then your child may borrow a book.
