  14. 14. 14 Mind Your Library Manners Excerpt from The Library Dragon by Carmen Agra Deedy • Treat a book like you treat a friend —you don’t wipe your nose on your friend. • Remember to check hurt books into our Book Hospital • Return books when due, so others can enjoy. (This is a library, not a bookstore!) • If you need help, ask! (That’s why I get paid the big bucks.) • Quiet, please. (Whisper in the library; yell on the playground.) • Happy Reading, Pumpkins!
