    I used this kit to create a library at my previous company. By having a way for people to know who had their books, people were comfortable bringing in their books from home and letting others read them. It worked out very well, giving us access to many influential books that are currently out of print. I ended up getting several refills it was so popular. Not only was it useful, it was fun to use and the packaging was great. Highly recommended.

    I'm weird about lending out books. Correction: I'm weird about lending out books and then not getting them back. I enjoy sharing and introducing others to books I've liked. I love when a friend reads a book I've lent them and then returns it to me for another. I feel like a library! Which is where these book plates come in. No, I don't really make people sign them out but the old school library cards on the inside are super cute. You can buy these online and I've also seen them at Barnes & Noble or Borders.

    I am a serious bibliophile and I have tons of books that I like to pass out amongst friends. This kit keeps them organized so none of my precious babies get lost!

    considering how many people these days just buy books and never go get them at the library this could bring back the old charm that library books bring. for some odd reason i loooooooooveee the smell/feel/sound of library books. and yes i said sound.

    Anyone in possession of a solid book stash knows what it’s like to lend a treasured book out only to see it disappear into a black hole without a trace. With the Library Kit you can adhere those library pockets (real ones!) into your own books, slip a checkout card inside, and even stamp it with the date. This makes it easier to lend with liberty to friends who don’t always remember the difference between their property and yours. You could even demand a fine for overdue books!

    As a child, I spent hours upon hours at the local library among the books making new friends, travelling to worlds I'd never been to or would never go to, and learning lessons that could not be discovered in the small town I lived in. From a poor family, the books helped me hide from the abuse at home. On Saturdays my mother would take us to the library for "story time" when the librarian would read to us before setting us free to roam. I loved the hush of the place and felt safe there and there alone. Taking books home to read helped me transfer the serenity and safety to my tiny bedroom, and I dreamed that someday I would have a library of my very own. My dream has now come true, and I have over 1,000 books held in specially made shelving floor to ceiling in what otherwise would have been a formal living room. The Personal Library Kit provides another step toward the reality of owning a library, and helps to document which books I've lent and to whom. In the past, I've lost so many books either because of my bad memory or someone else's, and I found myself unwilling to share. But that is not the true meaning of a library, is it? With the pockets and cards of this kit, I am comfortable loaning out my books again. But where can I purchase more pockets and cards? I've looked and looked, but can't find them anywhere.
