Our classroom has over 2,000 books in it. They are well used throughout the year. In addition to using these books we also utilize books from our school library as well as books from the Door County Libraries. I love their online book request system. I choose up to 15 books to reserve and they are all sent to one library of my choice for pick up! Yay for easy-peasy!
The problem I started having with using so many books, from three different sources, was remembering which books came from where, as well as what books I used for what, and when I needed the books. To solve these problems, I came up with a Mentor Books list.
