This FREE library book list printable will keep track of the books your family has checked out from the library so you will know exactly what you checked out, which library it belongs to, and when it is due.
When kids start learning to read–I mean, really start learning to read with proficiency–it is so much fun to watch them put their new reading powers to the test everywhere they go. Street signs, packages, tv commercials, and of course, any book they can get their eyeballs on.
So, naturally, the library becomes like a second home, as well it should! (Drop me off at pretty much any bookstore, and I could be there all day long).
But with great reading power comes great responsibility: You actually have to keep up with all those books you checked out when you get home!
Case in point: Here’s what our latest trip to the library looked like after we got home:
But wait, there’s a problem…
Maybe it doesn’t look like a problem yet, but three of those dinosaurs books disappeared into the dark recesses of my four year old’s closet, another six books got lost among my seven year old’s collection of library books from other libraries, and I actually checked out about five books myself.
So, when it was time to return all these books, I had a bit of a problem remembering just how many books we were looking for to return to this particular library.
Well, no more of that nonsense, I decided!

This little list has been a life-saver for me when it’s time to re-check books and also when it’s time to round up a few of them to return to the library.
No more trying to remember how many books each kid checked out, when they are due, and which library they go to.
and bookmarks too!
The illustrations were done in watercolor by yours truly. 🙂 I also whipped up a few bookmarks to go along with the tracker.
One is to log minutes read for those kids who need to keep track for school. Another is useful for jotting down books you’d like to read or for taking to the library to record call numbers of books you’re looking to check out.

Go ahead, download it, and enjoy a little bit less chaos next time you bring the library home!
Also, be sure to pin this to share the love with others (or just to save for yourself for later)!
