Do you have problems with overdue library books? These record sheets can be used to help you manage and hopefully reduce overdue library books in your library! Each record sheet has columns for:
3 lines to record dates that notices were sent home
Results column to notate if books was found, paid for (cash or check), or if book was worked off (5 slots to write in the date).
**I have my students work for one week in the library at various jobs to cover one lost book. If they come four days in a row, I give them the 5th day free.
So far, this has been much more manageable. It also allows me a quick way to look back over the whole 9 weeks to see which classes were having problems keeping up with their library books, so that I can follow up with them before the start of the next 9 weeks. I also use this information to figure out which classes earned “trophies” for having their library books turned in on time.
I included the front and back binder covers as well as the spine to create your own management binder.
Updated 4/5/16 to included record sheets for PreK-5th Grade stating ____ 9 weeks so that you can write in which 9 weeks it is. I also included a blank versions for each grade level that don't specify a 9 week period, as well as a completely blank form in case your school goes beyond 5th grade.
I hope you find this useful! Sandy
