DO NOT BRING YOUR DRAGON TO THE LIBRARY SUMMARY

There are many rules to follow when visiting the library: no running, no shouting and you must take care of the books. However, the most important rule that everyone must follow is not to bring a dragon to the library. 

 

Although they might want to take part in story time or library shows, they are simply not allowed. A dragon at story time would take up too much space, and a dancing dragon at a show could cause a big mess. Even though libraries are big, they are not big enough for dragons roaming the aisles, they will knock over the shelves. A dragon inside the library could even get too excited and start a fire! 

 

However, there is still a way for dragons to enjoy all the great stories libraries have to offer. Children can use their library cards to bring books home to dragons for them to enjoy! 

 

This entertaining story about the rules of a library is sure to keep students laughing!
