Organizing our library

After a couple of days working on categorizing all of our books! We have finally finished, and our library is complete!

Mind you, all of these books have been accumulated over a few years, many garage sales and daycare closing sales :)

Here is the link for the labels that you see, thank you pre-k pages! I added and combined a few categories so we didn't have to do too many different labels.

Each category has a different color circle and a number. (Yellow green or purple, from staples)...we placed this sticker on each book cover, on the top left cover and covered with clear tape.

Categories that we added or combined:

  • Added: "Character and God". This category contains books that talk about God (obviously, lol) or also talk about things like sharing, not hitting, etc.
  • We combined ALL of the holidays into one category as well.
  • Transportation become "Transportation and Geography"
  • Abc's and numbers were combined
  • Colors and Shapes were combined
  • And bears, zoo, pets were all combined into "Animals"...

And it all fits nicely on this shelf! (the shelf is screwed into the wall)
