Birthday Books


The Alcott School "Birthday Book Program" is an opportunity for families to donate a book to the Alcott Library in celebration of a child's birthday or in honor of a particular teacher or staff member.  Book selections may be made from an Amazon Wish List created by the Alcott School Librarian or from the “Birthday Book Basket” found in the library. The Amazon Wishlist can be accessed by using the email Books purchased from the wishlist will be sent directly to Alcott. If you purchase a book from the website, please send in the Birthday Book Form  (see below) with the information from your purchase.

Donations may be made at any time during the year.  A special bookplate is placed inside the front cover of the gift book recognizing the honoree and their date of birth.  The program allows participants to feel pride in enriching their school library.
