Help With Storing All of Our Classroom Books!

My students need book boxes and book bins to create an organized library where they can efficiently browse for books.

My Students

My students need to be able to efficiently and effectively "shop" for books every week!

My students are avid readers that can't wait every week to "shop" for different books in the classroom library.

They read with fervor and enjoy looking through the book bins. If organized, they are able to see exactly what level and genre of books they are browsing through, making the process quicker and easier.

My Project

I am lucky enough to have grown my classroom library and am in desperate need of a way to store and display my books for the students to dig through. Right now, our classroom library is not efficiently organized and many of the bins fall off the book shelves while students are trying to look through them. My goal is to have enough bins and shelves with organized book bins that actually fit.

Having Help Yourself Book Boxes and Book Bins would mean my students could book shop faster and in a more organized way.

This would allow students to be able to take their time and not feel as rushed or have to spend time cleaning up dumped book boxes.
