That was a bookshelf that I formally used in my classroom, but I donated it at the end of last year. I used it for general fiction chapter books and arranged them by last name for authors. The labels you saw matched the coloring for that row as each book had a matching color sticker(eg- Authors with the last name of Br-Ch had a red sticker).
Specific genres were housed in another section of our library (ex- science fiction, fantasy, etc.).
I hope that helps! I have thought about creating a post on library organization....thanks for bringing that back into my mind.
