    Hi Jennifer,
    While I understand your concerns, books will become 'well loved' and damaged through no deliberate fault of most children. I have a sign out sheet as the kids walk out the door. I've purchased some library tape to reinforce the bindings and covers. All books have my name on the front and inside. Before the children take home any books, I ask parents to sign a form (as does our library) that the family will be liable for any lost or damaged books. For the little ones, I used plastic ziplock bags to protect the books. Each quarter I send home a note asking parents to help their children search their home libraries for my books, also for any donations (books or funding) they'd be willing to give. When a book does not come back, I just think of the joy I hope it gives the child in reading and rereading...Best of luck. ;-D
