What if some books are torn or damaged?

:-( Ok it can happen. Please help the children understand the importance of keeping the books tidy. We take lots of effort in collecting good books from various publishers in UK, Canada, USA and India, our books are mostly based on recommendation from another parent like you. So a replacement is very difficult and expensive. If the book is completely damaged or lost then we will charge you a 100% replacement cost. Other libraries charge 125% to 150% for replacement. If the book is partially damaged then www.longlongago.in will assess the damage and get back to you.
