    Birthday Book Club!



    The Brookside Elementary School (BES) Library’s Birthday Book Club is a fun way to commemorate your child’s birthday while helping our library collection continue to grow! Participation in the program involves a $20.00 donation per book (per child).


    During the month of your child’s birthday (or half-year for summer birthdays), Mrs. Shaver, the BES Librarian, will help your child select a newly acquired, age-appropriate book from the Birthday Book Bin to bear a special bookplate with your child’s name and birthday dedication. Your child will then be the first to borrow the book. 


    This is the gift that keeps on giving to all who use the BES library. If you would like to participate for your child’s birthday, please see Mrs. Shaver for a form and submit to your child’s teacher in an envelope marked “Birthday Book Club”, with a check made out to the Brookside PTA in the amount of $20.00 and your child’s name and “BBC” in the check memo line. If you have any questions, please contact our librarian, Mrs. Shaver at kshaver@opusd.org. The online form is located HERE & payment have to be completed at LEAST 30 days prior to your child’s actual birthday or 1/2 birthday to be included in a timely manner. Note: August Birthdays will be recognized in September.
