    Hi whitemoon,

    My suggestion for rewiting:
    Please do not remove this book from the premises. Upon your request, the Front Office may provide a copy for you. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
    If you'd like to say "kind cooperation" it's OK too.

    Please refrain from taking away this book. (OR: Please do not remove this book.) The front office may provide it to you (OR: give it to you) upon request. We xxx highly appreciate xxx your kind cooperation. ("Highly" and "kind" are unnecessary clutter, a form of reader abuse.)
    Thank you in advance.
    You're highly welcome!
