CELEBRATION BOOKS!

     Celebrating a birthday, holiday, special person or occasion in your family or in your child’s life?   Choose a CELEBRATION BOOK! to celebrate a birthday (instead of a sugary treat!) Maybe you will choose a CELEBRATION BOOK! to donate to the Edison LMC in honor of a special child, family member, teacher or to commemorate holiday or event.  We appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity.

    If you are looking for book ideas, please email or call Mrs. Greska.   We do prefer hardcover books as they are much more durable than paperback ones when circulating to numerous readers.

    After the donation of a book:

  • a permanent CELEBRATION BOOK!  bookplate will be placed on the inside of the book with the donor’s name, date and the event or person being celebrated; 
  • the honored student can be the first person to check out the book from the Edison LMC. 

   Upon return from the first check-out, the CELEBRATION BOOK! will take its place on the shelves of the Edison LMC for everyone to enjoy for years to come. 

    Please email Mrs. Greska for book ideas if you would  like, or to check to see if the Edison LMC already owns a certain book.  Thanks for thinking of the Edison LMC!
