One idea I'm a little too slow with (not sure if I'll get it done this year): I 
wanted to create a large "book of thanks" because we use our public library heavily 
for interlibrary borrowing of multiple copies, preview before purchase, etc.  My 
idea was to use foam-core (tag board sizes) and bind together into an oversized 
"book"/card and have it go to our four buildings where appreciative staff and 
students could sign it.    Then I was planning to/will deliver it to the library 
during NLW with a plate of homemade goodies or a box of chocolates.
Easier:  (I've done this before)  just send flowers "from our library to yours"
Easy for at school:   Get helium filled balloons and tape to each table in the 
Easy grade 1-3 activity: see my "If I ran the ibrary book arts" file on my 
webpage/resources/for my library colleagues.  (webpage address in signature)
Haven't tried yet, but I have wanted to share these books with gr 3-5 student:
