S/H Birthday Book Club
Stuart Hall would like to offer you an opportunity to have your child participate in a program which is of great benefit to both the school and your child. The club was established to enhance the quality of the William M. Gallop Library through the donation of books commemorating the birthday of participating students. In this way, parents can model interest in books and help to expand our library’s collection. Research indicates that, particularly for boys, adult (and especially male adults) modeling of reading and interest in books is key to a boy’s interest and success in reading.
During his birthday month, your child will receive a card stating the title selected and will be given the opportunity to be the first child to check out the book from the library. Your son’s name and birthday will be inscribed on a special bookplate inside the book. Your child will receive his book in Chapel on the first Monday of the month. This year, we are asking that you have your son return his book to the William M. Gallop Library two weeks after he receives it.
Enrollment in the Birthday Book Club is $20.00 per child. If you are interested in participating in this program, you may enroll by entering into the box below the number of memberships you would like and clicking on “enroll.” You will be prompted to answer questions about your child, including suggestions on subjects/authors that your son enjoys so that we may best match a book to your son’s interests. Please answer individually for each child you are enrolling. Once you have answered the questions and clicked “enroll”, you may proceed to checkout by scrolling to the top of this page and clicking on your cart. If you have any questions about the registration process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about the Birthday Book Program, please contact School Librarian Mrs. Nancy Dunphy (email@example.com).
