Looking to organize your classroom library? This organizational system is the perfect way to keep your classroom library in alphabetical order! This product includes three different options to help keep your library organized!

OPTION 1: BLANK Classroom Library Book Spine Labels

(These are the original book spine labels!)

This option allows you to label your classroom library with the colorful book spines. You can choose which colors you would like to use for your classroom library. Labels are clean and crisp, and students can identify where books belong based on the color on the labels.

OPTION 2: LETTERED Classroom Library Book Spine Labels

This option is for you if you would like to have labels printed with a letter. These labels will allow your students to identify where a book belongs based on color AND letter. You will get the same look of the original Classroom Library Book Spine Labels, but students will have the letters for extra help when putting books back on your classroom library shelves.

OPTION 3: EDITABLE Classroom Library Book Spine Labels

These labels come in the same classic Classroom Library Book Spine Label colors, however now you can edit the text to fit your needs! You can type out the names of different genres, reading levels, or letters (if you want a different color sequence than the one offered in option two). You an also change the font to fit the look and feel of your classroom!

******EDITED 7/25/19 to include two more options******

OPTION 4: LETTERED INK-SAVING Classroom Library Book Spine Labels

This option is for you if you would like to save ink when printing your labels. They have a stripe of color down the middle of the label, as well as an letter, however the sides of each label will remain white.

OPTION 5: MULTIPLE LETTERS Classroom Library Book Spine Labels

If you have a really large classroom library, this option may be for you! These labels have three letters on each label. Once printed, you can cut the labels into smaller strips to put on the spines of your books. The label will not wrap around the book as much as the other options do.



The labels are formatted to fit Avery labels. If you will be printing them on an inkjet printer you will want to get style #8160.

If you will be printing them on a laser printer you will want style #5260.

The Avery labels are 1" x 2 5/8' labels and they come with 30 labels on each sheet. The only difference between the two labels mentioned above is that one is specifically made for inkjet printers, and the other for laser printers! Most office supply stores use laser printers. Please make sure you have the correct labels before purchasing!***

There is a printable color sheet included so that you can see what all the colors look like after printing from your printer. There are 28 color choices included. You can assign each letter its own color or have one color for a couple letters. After printing all the labels you simply put each color-coded label on the book spine of your books and put them back in your classroom library! The colors help students easily see which books belong where!

Make sure you have plenty of ink, because these labels take a lot to print!
