When I first started organizing my library, I did purchase my own "assembly required" bookshelves from various office supply stores. However, the bookshelves you now see in my classroom were provided by my district. Our district passed a bond issue a few years ago which provided each school with money for building improvements. Our teachers voted to use a chunk of that money to purchase bookshelves for each teacher since so many of us were organizing our classroom libraries at the time.
