Colorful Bookshelf and this way you can tell your kids what color shelf the book they are hoping for is found on. The library should use this method in the children's area.... or you could use each colour to represent a different level of book, so even in independent reading children know what colour they read at so they don't read picture books during SSR
Sapien Bookcase Designed by Bruno Rainaldi When he designed his Sapien Bookcase (2003), he created a unique solution for those with a lot of books and little space to store them. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, the tall Sapien can accommodate up to 70 small and large books in a very compact footprint. When fully loaded, the bookcase virtu¬ally disappears behind the books. All-metal construction and a heavy, weighted base ensure the design’s strength and stability.
