Library Labels Galore!


Thank you to everyone who has linked up with the Summer Shopping Linky Party so far!! It has been so fun to see all of the purchases! If you would like to link up (or just browse around) please click on the green link to check it out.

So, this week, I'm putting the finishing touches on my classroom library labels. I have three sections to my library this year: a leveled section, a genre section, and a nonfiction subject section (that last one is the part I'm still finishing now--it's taking forever!!).

Once I wrap that up, I will blog a bit more in depth about our system and how it's evolved over the years. I think (and hope!) that I finally have it down to the best system possible for my students. More to come on that!

In the meantime, I've put a number of different library labels in my shop. Each preview below shows a snapshot of the item and can be clicked to bring you to that exact item in the shop. I put the name and price so you don't have to go clicking back and forth.  :)

The library labels include...

Flipped Signs: Genre Labels ($1.00)...

 Bright & Clear Decor: Genre Labels ($1.50)...
 Flipped Signs: Leveled Labels ($1.50)...
Bright & Clear Decor: Leveled Labels ($2.00). Lots of mix and match options with this one...


Flipped Signs: Letter Labels ($1.50). To sort by author or book name...
Bright & Clear Decor: Letter Labels ($2.00). These are in a large file too, so they can be mixed and matched to your particular color scheme...

And last, but not least, Flipped Signs: Genre Posters ($2.50). This poster pack has labels that are 4" in diameter to decorate library baskets, as well as 6" in diameter for a larger, display size.


I never put a lot of items on at once like this--and I feel like celebrating now that I've finally linked them all up! 

Sooo...if you are interested in any of these items, I will take the first twelve readers to leave a comment with:
  1. Your email address so it can be sent along.
  2. Which library item you would like to grab.
Thanks for taking the time to read this...I appreciate it always!

  20. Hi Kristen! I am a fellow 5th grade teacher and a friend recently introduced me to your blog! I am in love with all of your creations, and you have totally inspired me to freshen up my room as I go into my 11th year of teaching! :) Quick question- do you have any bright, basic calendar numbers? I love the small number squares you use for your desk chair pockets, and was curious if they would fit in a calendar, and if they could be purchased separately. Thanks so much! Dana :)

    1. Hi Dana, thanks for your sweet comment! I am starting my 11th year too :)

      I don't have just basic numbers yet. The chair numbers have a 2.5" by 2.5" size as well, to fit smaller things like calendars so they could possibly work, though I haven't tried it myself so I'm not positive.

      Thanks again! :)

  35. I love the genre labels! I really love all your products & I'm redecorating in the polka dots & bright colors this year. (& I'll have two rooms at two different schools..yikes!) I'm just curious how many bazillions of dollars you spend on black ink?!?!

    1. Not bazillions. My black ink tank is larger than the rest of the colors so it doesn't go too quick. I've always printed a lot of stuff over the summer, so I'm used to it. :)

  41. Are you going to create a "Bright and Clear" version of your picture genre lables/posters? Like your Bright and Clear Alphabet posters? I like the fliped ones, but am trying to stay consistant. Thanks!

  43. Thanks Kristen! As a first year teacher it is so great to have such creative, yet consistent, options for decorating my classroom. I am super excited to not have to go out and buy tons of comercial products that are well... cheesy. And... what a plus to support another teacher. Thanks for all you do! You are so creative.

  46. Love your flipped signs! This is going to be my first year teaching and I am excited to be able use your signs in my class library. Question about printing your signs- Are you using black ink for the background or can they be printed on black cardstock and just have the colored lettering? Thank you for sharing and look forward to continue to read your blog when school starts.

    1. Hi Susan, thank you! The flipped signs print with black ink, so they won't work on black cardstock...I use white cardstock for mine. Thanks again! :)

  47. I adore your work! You've made mention of talking about how you set up your classroom library, and I wanted to learn more. Is there a way to search your blog for the word "library"? I'm thinking of giving my library a complete overhaul yet this summer and would love to see how you've set your up!

  51. Hi Kristen,

    Is there any way for you to make your genre labels and posters at 3 inches as well? The 4 inches are just a little too big for my baskets....I am in LOVE with them but unfortunately I can't get em due to size....
    Thanks Darby

  52. Hi Kristin,
    I love everything you make and that you teach a newcomer class. My school also has a newcomer class and people never know what it is when I am talking about it. I am teaching departmentalized writing (fifth grade) next year. I just downloaded your Voices Headers for my strategy board. I came across these library labels and just love them also. I am sorting my library this year by mentor text that reflect the traits. Would it be possible for you to make me the flipped library labels with writing traits instead of genre titles using the same graphic you used on the voice headers for me to purchase? I know this is a specific request and totally understand if you are too busy.Have great school year!

      I would love to more than anything, but I have to many projects going on right now and school is approaching. I'm sorry, it's really hard for me to say no!!
