(for the Winnequah School Library)
Today, many parents acknowledge their child’s birthday at school by bringing in food. The Birthday Books project is an opportunity for parents to honor birthdays a little differently -- by buying a book for the school library instead.
Here’s how it works:
1. Buy a book. The parent or birthday student chooses a book that they like. Ideas can come from the student and/or their family, a book store, or an online source. Check to see that the book is appropriate for the intended grade level. If you are not sure, contact Stacey Pipson, the Library Media Specialist, by calling 221-7677 x1117 or emailing email@example.com.
Also, check our school library catalog to see that we do not already own the book you are hoping to donate: http://destiny.mononagrove.org/
2. Fill out a contact form. Complete a parent contact form. These can be found online (see below). Send the book, along with the form, in to the library. The book is then prepared for circulation (entered into the library catalog, etc.).
3. The book is presented to the student and becomes part of the library collection. When the book is ready, it will be presented during a library class. The birthday student has the first opportunity to check out the book before it goes into general circulation.
The Birthday Books website will be updated periodically to reflect the book titles that have been donated to the school.
