Read it, don't eat it! by:Ian Schoenherr
Animals give rhyming advice on what not to do with a library book.

Book! Book! Book! by:Deborah Bruss
The animals are bored on the farm so they go to the library in search of books but have trouble making the librarian understand them.
Songs
Here is My Book
Here is my book,
(hold hands together as if a book, then open)
I open it wide,
To see all the pictures,
that are inside.
Craft
Make your own mini books. I used the pattern from http://library.thinkquest.org/J001156/makingbooks/minibook/index.ht and prefolded the books in assorted colors, then provided feathers, felt, paper scraps, stickers, and crayons for the children to decorate them.
Other
I had a "center" with different kinds of books to explore -- fuzzy books, rubbery books, shiny books, fabric books, plastic books, odd shaped books, etc.
