Bins, not shelves

Clip to ScrapBook #7

I use Booksource as well! I have it on my phone and just let them sit and take the phone if I am busy. I had my "librarians" put in all the books.

My books are in bins labeled with the letter of author's last name. The kids can take the whole bin and easily see the covers, and then they put them back in, no order needed other than the box letter.

I find:
A. It is easier.
B. Kids will put books back.
C. They will take out more books.
D. It looks kinda snazzy. (I have had the perfectionists complain there is not a pattern or order to the colored bins.)
