Tired of seeing that box everyday, my wonderful library aide (whose position is cut for next year) decided to make lemonade out of those old lemons. She removed any dust jackets that were at all salvageable, cut them up, and made them into:
Bookmarks! These are on cardstock and laminated.
A heart puzzle!My aide found a heart puzzle graphic online and took it home to her husband. He used an enlarging machine to make the heart huge. My aide then filled in the pieces with scraps of books. We are putting the heart on a huge banner we have that says "Badgers [heart] books!"
How have you re-purposed your old, weeded library books?
