I would definitely need some horn-rimmed glasses and a brown sweater vest as well

Does anyone else miss the non-electronic library checkout system? I know that self checkout is convenient and practical but it's so unromantic. 

So why not recreate the nostalgic version at home? To preface this, I'm not at all anal about the process of lending out my books. In this day and age, I'm thrilled to know others that are also big readers and I enjoy lending out my collection. I do, however, love the idea of having my own personal library. Remember the little pockets and the sign in/sign out cards? And the stubby pencils, too? Apparently you can now buy your own home kits!

Barnes & Noble also has a kit but the one above is the most authentically retro I have found. It even has a date stamper (and, of course, a stubby pencil).
