“I am sorry that a page ripped when it fell out of my bunk when I fell asleep reading. It won’t happen again. I’m sorry. From Jackson,” read the note inside a card addressed to “Library.”
Boy’s apology note over torn library book restores faith in this generation
A young reader is earning kudos after sending a handwritten apology note to the Toronto Public Library that he inadvertently damaged a borrowed book when he fell asleep while reading.
The library posted the note Saturday and wrote that it had been found in the book drop at the Main Street branch.
According to the CBC News, the note accompanied a torn comic book that had been repaired with tape.
More than 3,700 people had liked the post as of Tuesday evening.
Vickery Bowles, the library’s city librarian, told ABC News in a statement that the response to the letter has been heartwarming.
“It’s clear that many people around the world have also been touched by Jackson’s sweet note. I think Jackson has reminded us – young and old alike – about the joy of reading, especially a good bedtime story!” she wrote.
