Nancy Young Birthday Book Club

Are you looking for a great way to honor your child’s birthday here at school? Young LMC has the answer! You can donate a book to Young’s LMC to honor your student and help build our library collection. How are you able to participate in this club? Go to Use the following link to access our wish list. You will find books to add to our library collection to purchase for the LMC. The books will be sent directly to school from Amazon. During the month of your child’s birthday, they will have their picture taken with the book of their choice or Amazon purchase for our “Birthday Book Club” bulletin board located in the LMC. The student’s picture will be put in the front of the book with a bookplate commemorating the donation and be the first to check out the book! Thank you for considering this program! If you should have any questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Ranucci, LMC Director at If you decide to order a book, please fill out the following form to alert us that it is coming.


We would love to win the NEA SWEEPSTAKES! The more who enter, the better.
