I am looking for a recommendation for a classroom library book checkout system, does anyone have one they have used and are willing to recommend?
Hi Brian,I wrote a program for our middle school teachers to use with their classroom libraries that uses Google Forms to checkout/return books. I wrote it a couple years ago, so I would need to dust it off. But, I've been trying to go back and clean up some old Google add-ons I've created anyway, so it might be a good chance to work on that one.If you don't get any better suggestions, I'm happy to share what I have and would appreciate the feedback/testing. Cons, it will be a bit buggy at first. Pros, its free :)
Thank you for the offer, but will have to pass at this time.
Thank you again,
We use libib.com. You can have a classroom library for free that is just a library catalog of what you have. If you want to check out books, there is a fee. Educational use gets a 25% discount (about $80 a year). It is easy to use. If you enter the ISBN, it adds all of the book information automatically for you. It will assign barcode numbers for each item, then you print them however you want to and put them on the books. Students can self-checkout if you want them to, or you can do it. You check them in. Feel free to reach out if you want more information.
We used the Destiny program from https://www.follettlearning.com/.
For classroom libraries we use Booksource Classroom. It's totally free and does everything we need and more. Check it out!
Thank you for the recommendation, this is exactly what I was looking for.
Thank you for all the recommendations. It is nice to find a community of people willing to help each other in their time of need.
