There’s a scene on the TV show, Gilmore Girls, when Jess borrows a book from Rory. When he returns it, she discovers that he’s scribbled on some of the pages. When confronted, he remarks “I just wanted to put some notes in the margins for you.” Now, even if you’ve never watched Gilmore Girls, we can probably all agree on one thing- it’s never OK to write in someone else’s book. That being said, it’s also frowned upon to dip your library books in sand at the beach or douse a paperback cover with coffee. Of course, however, we know that these things happen which is why every so often a library book needs to be replaced. As the year winds down, let’s take a look back at some of the Fiction titles we’ve replaced in 2022. Some titles are worn, well loved classics with ripped pages that have circulated 208 times while others are fairly new but fell victim to aforementioned coffee spills. Just remember- whatever happens to the books, the library is always happy that you’re browsing our collection and borrowing from us!
