They prefer to stay in new homes, and they especially like to stay in homes with warm and moist conditions.  Even though they are harmless, booklice stick to building materials and adhere to them during construction. The good news is that these pests are not actual lice and they will die when the humidity in your house drops. However, some may survive longer. This requires you to engage a professional to get rid of them.
