Birthday Book Club


The Decker Prairie Library offers every family the opportunity to participate in the Birthday Book Club program. The purpose of the program is to honor your child’s birthday by donating a book to the Decker Prairie Library that will in turn, become part of the collection.

This year we will begin our Birthday Book Club celebration next week. We invite those whose birthdays fall within the months we are celebrating. Summer birthdays, don’t worry we have planned for you as well!


Membership to the Birthday Book Club is a $10.00 donation (checks made payable to “DPES”),

or $11.00 if donating online at (directions included)

Registration is due by Wednesday, October 25, 2017.


 At the party we will:

  1. Eat lunch together: sack lunch brought from home or a lunch purchased from the cafeteria.
  2. Students will select their birthday books.
  3. Mrs. Watson will announce student birthdays with their book choices.
  4. Share birthday book choices with each other.
  5. Pop popcorn and enjoy it for a treat!

Memorial Books
Books can be placed in our library in memory of a loved one that has passed. For a $10 donation, you or your child can come help us select a new book, and we will place a book plate inside the front cover to honor their memory. This book will then be checked out to your family and can be returned when you are done looking at it. It in turn will be enjoyed by others and become a part of our school's library collection.
If you have any further questions about our Birthday Book Club or our Memorial Books, please do not hesitate to ask.
