"A book is a gift you can open again and again"
Friends of the Rockwell Library Book Donor Club
The Norman Rockwell Elementary School library invites you to take part in our Friends of the Rockwell Library Book Donor Club. The program is a fun way for you to recognize a special occasion in your child’s life with the gift of a book to the Rockwell Library in their honor. Please consider our Library Book Donor Club when celebrating a holiday, a birthday, ½ birthday or any other event you would like to commemorate. Please keep the Library Book Donor Club in mind when considering a gift for other family members, friends and teachers. It’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your child and help our library collection grow at the same time!
It’s easy to participate! Visit our Library Wish List on Amazon.com to choose a book to purchase. You will find an extensive list of books Rockwell students would love to see on the school’s library shelves. The list includes a variety of titles, reading and interest levels as well as a wide range of price points and is updated regularly. Please only purchase books from the approved wish list as these have been carefully selected to best enhance our school library collection. If you would like to purchase a book that is not on the list please contact me directly. Once you've made your purchase you or your child can bring the book to the school library or you may choose to have Amazon ship it directly to the school.
A personalized bookplate will be placed in the book stating that it was donated to the library in honor of your child. The book will be shared with your child’s class during their weekly visit to the library, and he/she will be the first person to check it out and bring it home to share with you. When the book is returned, it will be placed into circulation for all students to enjoy. What a great way to encourage young readers while adding to our school’s library collection!
Here’s how to get started…
- Go to: www.amazon.com
- At the top right-hand side of the page, click the "Wish-List" dropdown menu and open the link to "Find a Wish List or Registry"
- At “Find Wish Lists and Registries” search bar enter my e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Browse through the wish list and make your purchase
Book Delivery Options:
Bring the book to the school library with a complete donation form
. Copies of the form are also available in the library, school office or on the Rockwell website.
Have Amazon ship the book directly to Rockwell. School mailing address and instructions are on the Amazon wish list page. If you choose this option, please complete the note section stating your child’s name, and that the book is for the Friends of the Rockwell Library Book Donor Club. In addition, submit a completed donation form
to the library so we can match up your child's information with the donated book. Copies of the form are also available in the library, school office or on the Rockwell website.
Please consider making a donation to your Rockwell Library through the Book Donor Club – it’s an opportunity to give a long lasting gift of reading to the whole school.
