Schalm library is excited to continue our "Birthday Book Program". Again this year, all Schalm students are invited to share their love of reading with their classrooms and with the entire school! This is a totally optional program, but we hope that students and families will enjoy participating in this tradition. Here's how it works....
On his/her birthday, your child is invited to purchase a new book from our library "wish list", wrap it up, and deliver it to his/her classroom. (You can access the wishlist by clicking on the link below, or if you prefer, you can stop by the library to look at a hard copy.) If you choose to purchase directly through Amazon, you may have it delivered to your home so your child can wrap it and bring it to their classroom. Or if you choose to ship it directly to the school, please indicate to Amazon that this is a gift so it will have your child's name on it when it arrives. When your child's birthday is acknowledged in the classroom, she/he will unwrap and share the book with the class. The classroom will then be encouraged to keep it for a week or so, after which your student will bring it to the library to add to our permanent library collection. A bookplate bearing your child's name will be attached to the book so that everyone who checks out this special gift book will know it was donated by your family in honor of your child's birthday.
We are very excited to continue this program! We believe it will be fun for our students and encourage them to read new and different types of books.
