Uh oh! Lost or Damaged Library Books

Q: What happens when your student loses or damages a library book?

A: First of all, don't worry! If the book is lost, just keep looking around. Popular hiding places for books are:
  • under the seat in the car
  • in the back or side pockets of a car
  • cubby at school
  • on personal book shelves at home
  • on classroom bookshelves
  • in a stack going to the public library
  • family member's house
  • friend's house
  • the afterschool lost and found closet in the auditorium
If you cannot find the book or a book is damaged beyond mending, families can either pay for a replacement book or can bring in a comparable book from home. If you choose to bring in a book from home, please make the sure book is
  • hardcover
  • gently used or new
  • something that Cragmont students would enjoy
Missing books hinder your child's use of the library so it is important that we solve lost/damaged book issues quickly to get your student checking out new titles as soon as possible!
