Birthday Book Club

Introducing a new program for 2017-2018:

Wilchester Birthday Book Club!

This program is a great way to honor birthdays at WCE and help
enhance our school library with new book titles.

How to Donate a Birthday Book Club Book:
1. Prior to your child’s birthday month, visit our wish list on Amazon.
2. Click on “Find a List or Registry” then, where it asks for a person’s name or email address, enter “Wilchester Birthday Book Club”.
3. Browse through book titles to find one that your child would love, or you can use the search feature to look for a specific title, author, or genre.
4. If you purchase through Amazon (or better yet, Amazon Smile!- with Wilchester Elementary School as your designated charity), please list the item as a gift and include a gift message with your child’s name and age/birthday.
5. If you’d rather purchase a book from the list at a local bookstore, you can. Just drop the book off at 13514 Pinerock with a note including the child’s name and age/birthday.

* If you would like to purchase a title not found on the list, please contact Leslie Valentine before doing so.
** This list has been carefully prepared to include books that are not already in our school library, ones that are school-appropriate, and ones that would enhance the selection of books at our school. You will find that the list consists of hundreds of books varying in genre and age/reading level.

Once you’ve ordered a Birthday Book Club book:
PTA will affix a label inside the book with your child’s name and birthday information on it:
This book is donated to the Wilchester Library in honor of Sydney Valentine’s 9th Birthday – August 2017
Books will be delivered once a month during school hours. The honorees will be the first to receive and read the books. When they’re finished, they will return the books to the library for others in the school to check out and enjoy.

If you choose to participate in this program, plan ahead!
Books will start being delivered in September.
Summer birthdays may be celebrated at any time during the year.
