Remembering to Return Items to the Library

February 2, 2012

When you take out a book from the library, I always use a bookmark. I write the due date on a post-it note and stick it to the book mark, as I read the book and move the bookmark the date is always right there. If you want you could also use the post-it as the bookmark. I've done that a few times also. Hope it saves you some money!

Most libraries allow you to set up an online account. In your account you can review what you have checked out, when it is due back, and you can even renew items.

Many libraries have a "pre-minder" service. You sign up to receive an email, text message, or automated phone call a few days before your materials are due. At that point you can go online and renew your items.

We have a wall hanging appointment calendar in the entry porch. When we come in from the library with a new load of books, we mark the due date and the number of books due on that date.

To remember to return library books, I would place a bin next to the door. Have a canvas tote in the bin. Place a clipboard by the door. Make a list of all the books when you bring them home and place it on clipboard.
