    Thorp Public Library Birthday Book Clubballoons

    The Thorp Public Library Birthday Book Club will start in January 2013! The Birthday Book Club is a wonderful opportunity for you to donate a book to the Thorp Public Library in honor of your child’s birthday! With your donation, your child gets to select which brand new hardcover book they would like to donate to the library (from our Birthday Book Club selection of new books) and we will put a bookplate in the book stating that this book was generously donated in honor of (your child’s name) and birth date. Your child will be the first to check the book out and then it goes on the library shelves for everyone in the community to enjoy. Frequently, children will select a book and discover that it is the Birthday Book of a friend which makes them smile!

    During their birthday month the birthday child(ren) will come to the library to select a new, hardcover book from a variety of titles chosen by our Director, Miss Julie.  Once a book is selected, a bookplate is placed in the book indicating the book was given in his or her honor.
