The SJA Library will continue to offer the Birthday Book Program as a way to refresh and build our current collection. Thanks to your generosity last year, I was able to purchase many new titles and I am happy to offer those books to your children. Each year, I remove outdated or damaged books and little by little and I am updating what we own. This is why the Birthday Book Program is so important!
To participate in the Birthday Book program, please send in a $15 donation (book costs range from $12 - $20). For your donation, your child will choose a new book from the Birthday Book selections. This book will have the student's name and grade inscribed on a bookplate that is then adhered to the book. The birthday child has the privilege of being first to check out the book for two weeks and will have his or her name on the Birthday Book poster displayed in the library. The book will then be added to our collection.
If you would like your child to participate in the Birthday Book program, please print this page and cut off and return the bottom of this form with the information as requested below**, as well as the $15 donation. Please make checks payable to SJA School Library. Book selections will begin immediately starting with any students whose birthdays are in August, and September. Book selections will continue throughout the school year. You may send in the information at any time during the school year, with the understanding that doing so at the end of the year reduces the breadth of book selection.
Also, since Birthday Book choices cannot be changed once the inscribed bookplate is glued to the book, all parents are invited to review the book their child selects. If you would like to review your child's selection, please indicate that when you when you send in the form. Multiple students may be listed on the reverse.
Thank you so much for helping to keep our collection updated!
