When I taught 6th grade, I had been teaching sociable studies for a couple of years and math for five then. Having a huge classroom library had not been a high priority. Then, eight years ago I turned to fourth quality and started collecting books through lawn sales gradually, ebay, and donations. My library has grown each year and this summer season I determined that I really wanted to transform it by organizing my books in bins.

There are so many amazing class libraries on multilple web sites. I’ve drooled over them, especially this library from Beth Newingham’s Scholastic blog post from in the past in 2009 2009! I just love those bookcases and baskets. The bookcases line up so neatly and you may tell they are great quality.

The other bookcase is school grade quality and very sturdy. There was one shelf that was not removable in the tall bookcase. The others were removed and coated on a set surface using the same foam mini roller. I am not sure just how many hours I spent painting these four bookcases even, but it was many! Each bookcase required THREE jackets of the black paint! Painting the little nooks and crannies in the “ABCD” bookcase was a whole pain too.
