       Book Care

      Please talk to your child about a safe place to put their books so they do not lose them, and so that they are not damaged.  By asking them to return their books on time and in good condition, we are teaching them to be responsible library patrons.  If a book is lost, late, or damaged a notice will be send home with the students. 

      At Longs Creek Library, we encourage your child to become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader, skillful researcher, and ethical user of information.  Your child will have the opportunity to visit the library to check out books, listen to stories, learn library skills, and much more!
