Tips on Books Care
1) Be a good role model. If you sometimes bring work home with you or you're taking a course yourself, your child will learn your habits.

2) Help your child to organize time. Establish a routine for completing homework.

3) Minimize distractions. Music may help relieve boredom but not retaining the War of Panipat in memory.

4) Don't wait for report cards or parent teacher meeting to address your child's academic problems.

5)Make use of the tutoring classes that the school has to offer.


Poor handling, inferior paper quality and environment conditions can send your books to the grave even before they reach adolescence. A little regular care can keep your books looking younger as they grow older.

1. Attics, basements and garages are not suitable storage areas.

2. Handle books with clean hands.

3. Place books upright on the shelves.

4. Acidic materials like bookmarks, pressed flowers and scraps of paper should     not be kept in books for long periods of time.

5. Do not repair documents with glue or pressure-sensitive tape since many glues     and pressure-sensitive tapes are highly acidic.

6. Keep documents away from sunlight or fluorescent light as all visible light will     eventually damage documents and ultraviolet light will destroy them.

7. Do not use paper clips, staples, straight pins, or other metal objects that will     eventually rust.

8. Place books in a moisture free environment and away from windows.

9. Do not earmark pages by folding.

10. Do not bend a book inside-out while reading. This can lead to weakening of the       binding.

11. Dust the books and the shelves regularly and wipe clean to keep away silver       fish.

12. Few mothballs placed on the shelves will discourage cockroaches.
