Birthday Book Donations

We invite you to celebrate your daughter's birthday by participating in Dana Hall's annual Birthday Book Program in 2021.
If you have contributed in the past, you know that your generosity has helped to enrich and grow the Helen Temple Cooke Library's collection, both physically and digitally. Not only will your gift help grow the collection, it will establish a permanent commemoration of your daughter's birthday in the Library.

Your contribution is tax-deductible and the program runs through May 1, 2021. The librarians will be happy to select a title or titles for you, or you may suggest a title or general subject area. Please also note if you have a format preference.

In all types of book donations, your daughter's name, birthday this year, and the donor's name will be included in the book’s online catalog record, and she will be notified of the titles donated in her honor. A bookplate with this information will be placed in any physical book purchased in her honor. 
Have questions or need help?

    "In my Literature Composition I class we did a poetry unit before winter break. Our poetry project was in collaboration with a school in Turkey. We created our own websites to display our works of poetry. The last day of school before winter break we were able to Skype with the kids from the school in Turkey, and it was so much fun to interact with students who were so far away. We were able to learn what their school was like, and how their classes worked."
