This is a reminder to please return my classroom library books to the classroom as soon as you are finished reading them.
I have personally purchased many of the books on my shelves, and every year I try to update my library with current and popular books that my students request. It is disappointing when students fail to return books, damage books, or destroy them. It is costly to replace them (most cost more than $5.00 each), and takes away from the choices available for my students. I am discouraged by the number of missing books. I will not be able to replace them, and will not be adding any new books unless students return those that are missing.
Please return books as soon as possible.
