A High School Library is expected to operate with a certain set of standards. That typically means that there is a list of books that contain questionable material for the teenage crowd. As such, many books are banned within the school systems.
Even with the top layer of questionable content left out of the High School Library, doesn’t mean that the books that are left don’t dabble in some other taboo areas. As such, many students would rather steal a book with this content, than to take it up to a librarian and have their names documented as checking it out.
A recent report stated that in a high school library the top theft books are ones surrounding the occult, or many of the Beat writers (if the library even carries them). Because their peers, or their parents might view the reading material as questionable, these curious students are quick to shove a book in their bag and walk out the door.
When some kind of anti theft security system is in place, similar to ones used for bookstore security, the quantity of theft incidents is dramatically reduced. Students are then forced to take their chances with the bookstore security, check the book out, or read the material while in the library. Each of the three options reduces the losses for your high school library.
