Celebrate your child's birthday with a BIRTHDAY BOOK!
Consider donating a book to our Coles library in honor of your child's birthday. A book plate will be placed in the front cover stating that the book is for your child. Mrs. Giannacio will take a picture of him/her holding the book and post it on the Library bulletin board where it will remain until the end of the school year. Also, your child will get to check the book out first!Check out the Wish List put together by Mrs. Giannacio for you to choose from to celebrate your child's birthday!
