Ex Libris

 

Doesn't this look like a cozy place to read?  It is the home library of my nerdy friend Lisa.  Now before you get discouraged and think, "We'll never have a library like that!", realize that this home library was years in the making.


When Lisa and I were first homeschooling (1997ish), her home library consisted of a few bookshelves under the kitchen countertop facing the family room.  It has taken her almost ten years to build her library to what you see today.


Lisa has taken the plunge into Dewey labeling.  Here are her books up close:





The labels say "The Kjeldgaard Family" and have the appropriate Dewey number listed as well.


So what are you waiting for?  An organized home library starts with just a few books.
