FREE Classroom library bin labels

Just a quick post to share my classroom library bin labels!

Last year I changed my book baskets to the large, clear bins from School Specialty (although Lakeshore and other stores carry similar ones), to better show the covers of some of my larger picture books. Therefore, I redid my labels to the ones you see in this post.

I printed and glued each label to black cardstock, then attached a colored sticker (I buy mine from Demco.com, which is a library supply store) with a number for each bin to the right side of the label. All the books that belong in that basket have the matching color/number sticker in the top corner. (I'll update this post later once I'm back in my classroom and can take some pictures of my book bins and books!) Fiction books have yellow stickers, series/author books have green stickers, nonfiction books have blue stickers, and chapter books have pink stickers. You can see my library organization below (I have this sign posted in the classroom library area):

My library bin labels are in two downloads due to size:

Enjoy!

  4. I am re-entering the classroom after being a literacy coach for 6 years. I have struggled with how to organize my classroom library to be functional and easy to maintain. This will help me immensely! I have several other series and authors I would like to add. Is there any way you could send me the label set in an editable version?

  5. Hi, do you have an updated picture of your library? I really would love to see how the stickers look once on! Did you write on the colored sticker or buy the colored/numbered labels? Thank you!
