I didn't think about that. I was just thinking that if they saw a bunch of books that had been checked out to a particular person coming up with missing pages, they could take action. I know I sure wouldn't want to be the person that checked out a book before/after someone cut it up and have to take the blame! I always take things up to the front in stores that are damaged too. (You would not believe how many people steal ball-bands from yarn for the free pattern! They could just go to the website for it most of the time too-DUH!)
