How To Organize Your Classroom Library- Without Shelves!

SOS I need help! I have one shelving unit in my classroom and may have to divide it between my library and my students' notebooks. I think that I have a need for at least one more unit. It is not enough for me so I really have to find a pinteresting solution. This is my library corner and the table to the right in this picture is my "sub shelving system' aka all purpose table. The picture below was taken before the start of school and not much has changed.
