One of the most common questions new school librarians have is, “What are the basic library supplies I need?”

While it’s true that each school library will have specific supply needs, there are some basic supplies that belong in most school libraries.

Book Processing Supplies

  • Book covers of various sizes
  • Spine labels
  • Fillment tape
  • Plastic bone folder
  • Spine label covers of various sizes & colors

  • Shelf markers or shelf labels

Where can I purchase library supplies?

I usually purchase from one of the four suppliers below, and I can highly recommend each one.

It’s a good idea to keep track of product information like item numbers, cost, sizes, and pricing.  It will lesson the hassle when it comes time to re-order supplies.  I have a free Master Supply List sheet on my Printables page that might come in handy.
