As you have read from my shop announcement or bio, I am a librarian. Many years ago, they digitized the records, so check out cards stopped being used, for reasons of privacy. Once the check out cards stopped being utilized - so did the adorable little pockets they stuck in the back of books to hold the check out cards in place.

These particular book pockets were discovered while clearing out a storage room, they are guesstimated to have been made during the 1970's and 80's - and the self adhesive still works! Just peel the wax paper backing off and stick! (it's a little less sticky than it was originally, but still holds the pockets into a book). Made from manilla card-stock, they measure approximately 4.5" tall by 3.5" wide. The front edge of the pocket is cut a bit lower than the back edge to allow about 1" of the check out card to peek out.

Stick these in your favorite tomes and make your friends sign your books out when they borrow them (ensuring you'll get them back). Or use them for a great craft project, or as a way to keep 3x5 cards tucked neatly in place on a bulletin board. Use them creatively in your library themed wedding! There is a limited number of these babies, so grab them while you can!

This listing is for a set of ELEVEN (11) book pockets. These are the LAST book pockets I have. Check out cards not included.
