Clip to ScrapBook #4

Several schools in my area allow students to check their own books in and teach them how to shelve them as they do. I have always been afraid of doing this, but it has been successful for those who have done it. (Their check out barcodes are put on a folder that they bring to the library. This lets them check out quickly.) I have done book talks on different genres, fiction/nonfiction and their differences, researching using Destiny.

I'm not sure this would work in your situation, but some schools in our system have a designated morning and afternoon time every day for students to check in books, renew, or check out a new book. This leaves instruction time open for nothing but instruction.
