Turn Dollar Tree Cutting Boards into Sturdy Library Shelf Dividers

Librarians and, don't walk to your nearest Dollar Tree! You're going to need lots of these cutting boards to make new shelf dividers for your books! 

This year I became the K-12 District Library Media Specialist for our schools. I am going between our elementary school library in the mornings and our junior high/high school library in the afternoons. Since our high school library hadn't been used as a library in several years, I inherited a pretty massive mess, but couldn't wait to take it on! I love organizing! One of the first things I needed was better signage. I wasn't able to afford much on my library budget, so as I laid in bed thinking of anything and everything sturdier than cardstock, Dollar Tree cutting boards popped into my head and the rest is history! 

I can't wait to make some of these for our elementary library, as well. Only I think I will print colored pictures on cardstock and just fold them over the ends of the cutting boards and cover over them with packing tape.
