Birthday Book Club

Birthday Book Club

The White's Tower Elementary Birthday Book Club is a voluntary opportunity for parents and students to donate new books to the White's Tower Library Media Center in a student’s name. These donated books will add newly released and popular titles or replace lost or damaged copies to our school library. This program shows your child the value of reading and the importance of choosing quality books, and helps to increase the library’s resources for students and teachers to use in the future.

1) Students may bring in a book of their choice. The book must be elementary school age appropriate and preferably hardback so that it will withstand many checkouts.  This would be a very valuable service to the library!

2) Students may also choose to pay for a brand new book that has been selected and ordered by the library, but not yet added to the collection. These librarian-recommended books are sturdy, with bindings that are intended to withstand years of circulation. The average cost of these books is $15.00. If you choose this option, you may send a check made out to White's Tower Elementary for $15.00, and enclose it in an envelope labeled "Birthday Book Club". Your child may then look through the selection of new books and choose one to donate to the collection. You are welcome to come to the library and assist your child with selecting a book.

When a book has been purchased, a dedication with the student’s name and birthday will be added to the inside cover. After cataloging and processing, the book will be officially presented to the library during your child’s library class.  Students may donate a book to the library during their birth month or for those with summer birthdays, during the late spring or early autumn months.

Participation in the Birthday Book Club is a great way to encourage and celebrate reading with your child. If you would like to participate, please fill out in the bottom portion of this form and return it to school with your child as his/her birthday approaches. Thank you for your support. If you have any questions, please email me.
