Classroom Library Checkout System

I recently wrote about the books that I like to keep in my classroom library. 

My book check out system was getting confusing so I decided to come up with a new system

I created little strips of paper (See below) that I cut out and placed one inside each and every book in my classroom library. 

They are a like a cheap and easy version of the library cards that used to go in the backs of books!

I then created a book checkout rule sign (Also see below) that I posted above some pieces of cork board that I glue to a section of my chalkboard. 

I won't insult your intelligence by explaining the checkout sheet to you! :)

Students put their book check out sheets on the cork board and I keep extra slips pinned to the board as well!

I just started doing this a few days ago, but I have really high hopes that this system will basically run itself and be easy!
