I am an employee and student at a public library. My library participates in the Young Reader's Choice Awards and the Graveyard Book is a 2011 nominee. To introduce this title to our library users, I created a family-friendly spook alley during Halloween weekend (Oct. 29th & 30th). The "Graveyard Walk," based on the Graveyard Book, was located within our story time room. "Tour Guides" led visitors through five areas that introduced participants to some of the characters and important events in the book. We had quite a few visitors to the graveyard, many of whom had come in to the library specifically for this program. The graveyard was continuously reviewed as "awesome" and "fun" by our younger visitors.
You can take a video tour of the graveyard at:

I hope you enjoy it. I had a great time creating this program!
