The Surprise in the Book Drop: Tabs, Tabs, Tabs

surprise book drop

As the end of the semester approaches, book returns increase in number.  Library staff are busy scanning books in, loading them onto carts, and sending them upstairs for re-shelving.  One thing we’re also busy with…removing sticky tabs from returned books.


We realize that this is a busy time of year for everyone, but we kindly ask that you remove your tabs from your books before returning them.  On days when we have hundreds of books returned, it can take up a lot of precious staff time to remove tabs and post-its from books.  If it all possible, please use non-sticky page markers; sometimes the sticky tabs can tear fragile pages on older books when they’re removed.

The staff thank you for your consideration.  Good luck on your exams and have a great summer!
