Book Graveyard – Books That Have Had Their Final Checkout

Here is a book graveyard display, made with books that have met an awful end.

At the beginning of each school year, I give a book care talk, and usually hand out damaged books to random students, and let them guess what happened to them–spilled on, chewed by a dog, little sister colored in it. They enjoy guessing what befell the unfortunate books.

This year, I decided to try something different, and let students pay their last respects to these books on display. Nothing too fancy, just some gray construction paper and a Sharpie marker for the headstones. 

I found inspiration from fellow blogger and Assistant Library Director, Rebecca, at http://hafuboti.com/2014/10/20/the-book-graveyard/. Thank you for sharing your ideas.
