What educators are saying

LOVE this resource! Genrefying my classroom library has been the best and this makes it easy to stay organized - and it's pretty!
I wanted my students to engage in reading from a wide variety of genres. This resource was crucial in organizing my library to accommodate that purpose. Very easy to use.


These genre book labels are the perfect way to organize your classroom library! Simply print and attach the book genre labels to your classroom library books! The genre labels are easy to use, so students can search for books that they are interested in by genre and then place them back in your classroom library. It is the perfect way to organize your classroom library at the beginning of the year!

These Genre Labels Include:

  • A different colored label for each genre.
  • Black and white version of all labels.
  • A printable book genre file that can be turned into a poster.
  • A book genre reading checklist for students.

The Following Genres are Included:

  • Biography
  • Autobiography
  • Realistic Fiction and Sports
  • Fiction
  • Adventure
  • Thriller
  • Humor
  • Graphic Novels
  • Picture Book
  • Science Fiction
  • Historical Fiction (which also includes specific time periods if you want to organize the labels even further)
  • Fantasy
  • Poetry
  • Mystery
  • Folk Lore
  • Fables
  • Myths
  • Fairy Tales
  • Folktales
  • Nonfiction
  • Memoir
  • Mythology
  • Dystopia
  • Plays

Important to Know:

  1. These labels need to be printed on standard sized Avery Address Labels Product 5260. The labels should be 1 inch by 2 and 5/8 inches (30 on a page).
  2. This is a PowerPoint file.
  3. Colors may vary depending on type of printer and ink.
  4. This file is not editable in order to protect my work.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Allison F. said, “This product really helped me organize my library by genre. I do a monthly genre report with my students and having my classroom library organized in this way will help students with book choices. I love how they are color coded, too, so students can use to key to find exactly what they are looking for. Thank you!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Leah C. said, "Exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to store my books without bins, but wasn't sure how I wanted to organize them to still include genre. This resource solved that problem for me and saved me hours and hours of work to make the labels myself."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Katie K. said, "This resource is a sanity-saver! I love keeping my classroom organized, but as many of you teachers know that is nearly impossible in the elementary classroom! I've always had a classroom librarian job in place, but this resource has changed the game for me! It is so much easier for them to stay focused on the colors rather than author's name or any other system I have tried in the past. I LOVE THIS RESOURCE! can't recommend it highly enough!"
