Birthday Book Club

Birthday Book Club


Dear Dows Lane Families:


Help celebrate your child’s birthday with a unique gift to the The Dows Lane Library! When your child joins the Dows Lane Birthday Book Club, a book is donated to the school library with a special commemorative bookplate in your child’s honor. It’s a fantastic way to help grow our library collection and get your child excited about reading.


To join the Birthday Book Club fill out the bottom of this form and enclose your $15 donation, payable by check. Around the time of your child’s birthday, we will invite him or her to come to the library to select a new book for the Birthday Book Club. Parents of children with summer birthdays may select a date during the school year, such as a “half-birthday,” to honor their child. Your child will have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of books.


After your child selects a birthday book, we will place a permanent bookplate in it to acknowledge your gift. Participants will have the honor of being the first to check out their special book.


The books you buy will be a source of enjoyment and learning for both your child and other students for years to come. Children have a special appreciation for the books they select. They enjoy sharing them with their classmates and teachers.


Checks should be made out to Irvington PTSA and the form should be addressed to Christina Rosenblatt, the Dows Lane Librarian, and sent back in your child’s backpack. We look forward to celebrating your child’s special day and growing our school library!
