Birthday Book Club

Celebrate with the Van Arsdale Birthday Book Club
Are you looking for a unique way to celebrate your child's birthday? We invite you to participate in Van Arsdale's Birthday Book Club program. Your child will be excited to show off their birthday book in the library. Our Birthday Book Club promotes a sense of excitement about books, which in turn supports reading and learning year round and outside of the classroom.

What is the Birthday Book Club?

Van Arsdale’s Birthday Book Club is a voluntary program designed to enrich the school’s library collection while giving our students and their families an opportunity to feel a part of the library.  Please consider celebrating your child's birthday by giving a gift, a new book, to our library. It's a wonderful way to remember your child's special day, and your gift will be shared and enjoyed by Van Arsdale students for years to come! Donations ensure that our library continues to grow.

How does the Birthday Book Club work?

Every child at Van Arsdale will receive a letter to participate in this Program. When it is your child's birthday month, you have the option to donate $15.00 to our library in honor of your child's birthday. In return, your child will receive a personalized book plate (placed in the front cover of their chosen book) honoring their birthday.

Does my child keep the book?

No. Your $15.00 donation helps to offset the cost of purchasing books for our school library, and the book your child chooses becomes part of our permanent library collection.  Your child does not keep the book, but will be the first one to check out the book. When your child returns the book, it will be available to all students at Van Arsdale. Students always enjoy looking at the book plates honoring a student's birthday.

What if I don't receive a "Birthday Book Club" letter? Closer to your child's birthday month, a letter will be sent home with your child.  Students with a summer birthday will receive a letter during the month of their half-birthday. If you do not receive a letter, please feel free to print a copy and fill it out. Please return all forms to Van Arsdale’s school library.
