Boy Writes Adorable Note to Library Apologizing for Damaging Book

Falling asleep with a good book is not just for grownups ... it's for little boys too.

Librarians at the Toronto Public library got a bit of a surprise when they were sorting through the books returned through their dropbox. An Asterix comic book had a letter paper-clipped to the outside addressed to "Library". It read: "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."

Emily Post would be so proud right now. Library employees say while some parents do make children come in and apologize for damage done to books, they rarely get a handwritten note. The Toronto Public Library shared the note on their facebook page where they openly forgave the little boy for the damage and encouraged him: "Here's to many more nights falling asleep with a good book, Jackson!"
