You would think that something like that would be self explanatory... People no longer speak up when things go wrong or not as expected. They just shove things aside and hope the next person to encounter the problem doesn't notice it... Like vomit in a book. No one will notice that.

Isn't the general rule that if a book is damaged in any way you replace it?

You should make them compensate for the book, OP. Although, try not to be too harsh. I know if I threw up on a book, I definitely wouldn't have the guts to face the librarians wrath. FYL

Too harsh? I think asking people to not bring in books with throw up on them seems pretty reasonable.

Those patron need some sense knocked into them. Would they want a gift filled with vomit?

I once got a book from the library that had dicks drawn on almost every page.

That is just sick...

Intended pun, or just an innocent comment? :p

Automatic reaction that coincidentally was also a pun... LOL

It must have been The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs

Obviously none of you watch South Park

On the bright side they still return books, shame they're vomited on haha

some people are just disgusting and don't see what is clearly wrong with what they're doing. yuck. sorry OP hope you didn't get sick after that

There should be some sort of liability policy signed when a library card is received. Libraries don't always have the biggest budget for books.

There is. At least at the library I worked at and the one i am currently patroning.

Take the book back and then once they ask for another, take it and put some spaghetti in the back page. Then proceed to open the book to the final page, and smash it into their face; which then simultaneously spoils the ending and and gives them an pre dinner snack

What is wrong with you...

Yes, let's ruin even more books for some stupid, juvenile prank. I guess if you really want to be fired from your job that badly, that's one way to do it.

I've never thought of reading to my dog...

But if you leave a book lying around it's possible for a dog to damage and/or throw up on it.

Actually reading to dogs is a great way to get children to read. Seriously, there have been studies on it and it's been introduced in some schools.
