      I do want to use paint stirrers in my classroom library but in a different way than pictured. The idea behind this picture is to use paint stirrers to divide the books up by the author's last name. I believe these dividers will end up falling out and with the amount of dividers in this picture, it looks as though it'll be a tedious task just placing them back where they are supposed to be.
