Birthday Book Club


Birthday Book Club is a PTO Proiect that started in 1987. Each fall parents are sent a letter from the Birthday Book Club Chair offering them a chance to participate. The school librarian chooses books costing varying amounts that she would like to add to the library. Parents decide from one of four price categories. During their birthday month participating children are called to the library to choose a book from a selection presented on tables in the Elsie Lynch Nature Center of the library.

The book then gets a sticker placed on the spine of the book, indicating it is a birthday book and the child’s name and birth date is written on a nameplate inside the front cover of the book. Once the librarians have included the book in their inventory, the birthday child is invited to the library to be the first child to sign the book out.
