Colorful Bookshelf and this way you can tell your kids what color shelf the book they are hoping for is found on. The library should use this method in the children's area.... or you could use each colour to represent a different level of book, so even in independent reading children know what colour they read at so they don't read picture books during SSR
Home libraries usually either look way too stuffy or like the decorator was just trying too hard. This one just looks cozy. I love the shelf to the right of the couch because it just looks like a floor to ceiling stack of books. My library will totally have stacks of books no matter how hard I try to keep them all on the shelves.
