Tear off the cover, Cut or shred the pages, Discard.

Doing the above can be HARD for those of us who love books, but a school library is NOT an archive. Try to remember WHY you decided to weed the book. Was it worn out? Out of date? Contained wrong information? No longer checked out? Author unknown to current students?

If the book meets any of these criteria, why would you want someone else to have the book? Replace the good ones with new copies, and let go of the rest.

It's called "weeding" for a reason.
