In the post (and in my classroom library video) you can see how I use labels on the back of the books that indicate where the book belongs in the library. The labels indicate the section of the library and the basket in which the book belongs. I dedicate multiple reading workshop mini-lessons at the beginning of the school year to teaching my students how my library is organized, how to properly return books to correct baskets, how to record books in the reading log, what the color codes mean, etc.
