Today, I want to share with you a little thing I did to prolong the shelf life of my classroom library books.
If you are like me, you have a lot of money invested in your classroom library and want those books to last for a long time.
I found that using plain packing tape on the spine of my books kept them looking good for much longer. I just cut a length of tape the height of the book and applied it right over the spine, overlapping the front and back covers. If you cut the tape strip too long, just trim it after you have applied it. Easy peasy!
My books lasted much longer with less chance of damaged spines and covers.
