Why do you put a wrapper around the item?

We wrap the item to remind you that you borrowed it from us even though it’s the property of another library. The barcode on the wrapper helps us track the item in our system. We want to be extra careful of another library’s material, so we ask that you hand it to a staff member instead of putting it in the book drop.
