PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

****THIS IS A FREE VERSION OF OUR LARGE LIBRARY ORGANIZATION SYSTEM. It only has 6 labels per topic so the file is small enough to remain free as per TPT guidelines. You can print more than one copy of each page so you have enough for all your books. For an easier to print file (with 30 of each label, one full sheet so you can pick and choose as needed), Coordinating Book Bin Labels, and a much larger selection of book labels, see the paid version in our TPT store. Thank you! *****

I came up with this system as a way for me to keep the books organized, and put the responsibility of maintaining that organization back on the kids.

I divided the books by topic, and then labeled each of them so they
have color coded spines. Now, all the books are together by topic, so if I want to do a unit study on Dinosaurs, I can easily find all the Dino books….. or weather, or rocks, or African folktales- it’s all there.

The kids are able to put the books away in order too, because all they need to do is match the spine color. I added color coordinating labels to the shelf with picture images to help the kids (even the non-readers) find what they are looking for quickly.

To make and attach your labels: I printed them on regular copy paper, cut them out with a paper cutter, and attached them with clear packaging tape at the bottom of the spine. Easy!

The template I used is 2.625 x 1 and should fit any standard size return address label. In the file, I link to a specific kind, but as always, run a test print first. Personally, I just used regular paper and packaging tape, and it worked beautifully.
