THE BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB
The Birthday Book Club is an opportunity for all elementary students at St. Ann’s Academy to contribute to their school library.
Here’s how it works:
During the week of your child’s birthday (or anytime during the school year), he or she donates a NEW book to the library. Books should be valued at under $10.00. Good literature suitable for elementary students aged 5 – 12 years. (NO “board books” please)
Children receive recognition in many ways;
- A certificate is attached to the inside book’s back cover with the child’s name printed on it.
- A list display in the library shows members’ donations by child’s name and book title.
- AND….a Birthday Party: In June all children who have contributed are invited to share in a Birthday Book Club celebration with cake, juice and videos in the library.
