Oregon Battle of the Books!


Collection Update – We are updating the collection throughout this year. We’ll be looking at every book, evaluating it for condition and relevance, and replacing books in poor condition when budget allows. Ask us for details and how you can help: Volunteering at Cheldelin

Book Care

Please take care of CMS books and textbooks:

  • Cover textbooks with paper covers that tape only to themselves and not to the book.
  • Leave pages and book bindings clean and whole. Remember that we charge for tears, stains, or writing (except for names on the inside cover).
  • Inspect your textbooks when you receive them; if you see damage in books, please bring it to the attention of the librarian immediately.

There are also some helpful videos about book care:
