One thing teachers always worry about when building a classroom library is the possibility that books will get lost, stolen, damaged, eaten, etc. There’s no fool-proof way to protect your books if you put them in a classroom library, but you can try to help students be more responsible with books, and let your students know that you value your books. Here’s a really basic sheet I made for keeping track of books. This sheet was mainly the responsibility of the student with the librarian job for the week.
