Birthday Book Club

    The Palencia Elementary School Media Center’s Birthday Book Club is a wonderful way to commemorate your child’s birthday. Your participation not only enriches the library collection but allows you and your child to be personally involved in its growth.
If you would like to take part in the Birthday Book Club, a donation of one new hard back book is required. This book should be a book that your child enjoys reading and one that we don’t have in the media center already. You can choose a new book at the book store or a book from the Book Fair. A quick check of our library catalog (Destiny) will tell you if we already have the book. Instead of a book, you may make a monetary donation of $15 and your child can choose from recently acquired books that are waiting to be processed.

The following is included with your enrollment;

  • A birthday book plate placed inside the front cover of the donated book with your child’s name and birthday.
  • A photo of your child and the book chosen to be displayed in the media center and online in the Pirate Cove Connection. This photo will be sent home at the end of the school year.
  • A special thank you on the WPES Morning News on or near the day of your child’s birthday. Your child’s name and the title of the book donated will be shared by our WPES News Anchor.
  • Your child will be the FIRST to read the book donated.

This is a very special honor and a gift that keeps on giving to all who use the Palencia Elementary Media Center. If you would like to donate a book for your child’s birthday, please fill out the form below and send it to the media center with the book or donation at least 2 weeks prior to your child’s birthday. Monetary donations may be made via SchoolPay (preferred) or in the form of a check made out to Palencia Elementary. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Flowers or Mrs. Powell at [email protected] or call (904) 547-4037.
