Birthday Book Club

35816867 - happy birthday cupcakesTo help facilitate the growth of our library, Archway Lincoln has adopted the Birthday Book Club instead of in-class birthday celebrations.

Here’s how it works:

Every month beginning in August, PSO will invite all birthday students celebrating that month, and their parents, to the library to enjoy treats and sing “Happy Birthday.” We have listed the dates and times for each celebration below.

The celebration is open to all students, regardless of whether they contribute to BBC; however, only those students who have donated funds may put their name on a book sticker and receive a special birthday bookmark.

There are three ways for you to participate in the Birthday Book Club:   

Screenshot 2017-07-25 07.26.46Go to our PSO Store and select BBC or click here. Make a $20 donation per child. Indicate your child’s name, teacher and birthday month.Screenshot 2017-07-25 07.26.56Fill out this registration form BBC registration form and attach a check made out to Archway Lincoln PSO and return it to the PSO mailbox at the front desk.

PSO uses any funds collected to buy books for the library based on a list established by teachers and headmasters. If a monetary donation is made in your child’s honor your child will choose from a wide variety of books purchased by our library volunteers and will get to affix the following sticker to the inside cover.

The book will forever bear the sticker with their name, and students who check out the book in the future will have fun seeing who selected it. Following the celebration, your student will have the opportunity to check out their chosen book at their next library time.  Our students are proud of their lasting addition to the library!

All the celebrations are held in the library. Here are upcoming dates:

We Need Your Help

The Birthday Book Club is a PSO run event. It is a small commitment of time (no more than 30 minutes) and it is an amazing way to celebrate our kids and see how our library grows. If you wish to help out with this event in any given month please sign up here: BBC Volunteers

We look forward to seeing you!
