For years, we’ve kept a library book basket or box, but most days it was a jumbled mess of overdue materials. We just couldn’t seem to keep track of when books were due and were forever paying late fees (and late fees on books for 5 kids and 2 adults…well, you can imagine!)
I cut the plastic down to a rectangle that fit well on the side of my library box.
Then, I taped it to the side of the our library box with clear packing tape. It’s a little tough to see here, but I taped the top and bottom only, leaving the sides open.
Finally, I looked up online when my books were due (because I had misplaced my due date receipts–imagine that!) I had two different dates these books were due, so on two different pieces of scratch paper, I wrote the due dates and slipped them behind the plastic.
