Birthday Book Program

Westfield Community School has a Birthday Book program which enables parents and students help build the library's book collection by making a donation of $10 to $15 in recognition of their child's birthday. Donation's are used to purchase new, quality, library bound and highly reviewed children's books that range in price from $12 to more than $20. Your child will be able to select any book he/she would like from the Birthday Book collection.

The Procedure:

  1. Return the following form to the school library as soon as possible (or at any time of the school year). Checks should be made payable to Westfield Community School. (See below to download a copy of the form.)
  2. Middle school students will be called to the library to select a book from the Birthday Book collection. A bookplate with the child's name, his/her birth date and the school year will be placed in the book. Elementary students will choose a book from the Birthday Book collection during their regularly scheduled library time.
  3. The student will be the first to check out the book to share with his/her family and class.
  4. The student will be given a bookmark, pencil and candy. A picture will be taken and it will be hung in the library.
  5. Information about this will be shared in the school newsletter.
  6. To accommodate families with several children in attendance at Westfield, a family may make a donation towards one book in names of all their children. You may, if you wish, indicate a specific date upon which you want the book presented.
