Honor Your Child…

An opportunity to donate a book to

The South Salem Library

Birthday Book Collection


Here’s how it works…

1. Select a book to donate:

  • Talk with your child about the type of book he/she would like to donate.
  • Choose a book from the attached library wish list. The list represents the library’s current needs and is updated throughout the year.
  • Purchase the book from your favorite bookstore.
  • **Please note** Mrs. Livanos (our library media specialist) has requested that all donated books be hardcover.

2. Send the book to school:

  • During the week of your child’s birthday, simply fill out the form below and insert it into your donated book.
  • Send the book to school with your child on your child’s regularly scheduled library visit.
  • Your child will deliver the book to Mrs. Livanos, who will enter your child’s name on the special bookplate inside the book.

Thank you! Your generosity brings…

 the joy of reading to our students, and the program closer to reaching our goal of 100 books donated to our library this school year.
