Birthday Book Club

Donate a Book to the VRA Media Center

Become a member today!

The Valley Ridge Academy Media Center’s Birthday Book Club is a wonderful way to commemorate your child’s birthday. Your participation not only enriches the library collection but allows you and your child to be personally involved in its growth.


To take part in the Birthday Book Club donate one new undamaged hardcover book (not a board book). This book should be a book that your child enjoys and one that we don’t have in the media center already. You can choose a new book at the book store or a new book from the Book Fair. A quick check of our library catalog (Destiny) will tell you if we already have the book. If you would prefer, you may make a monetary donation of $15 and your child can choose from recently acquired books that are waiting to be put on the shelves.


The following is included with your enrollment;

- A special book plate placed inside the front cover of the donated book with your child’s name and birthday.

- A photo will be taken of your child with the book he/she chooses and will be displayed in the media center and online in the Valley Ridge Reader. This photo will be sent home with your child at the end of the year to keep and enjoy.

- Your child will be the first to read and/or check-out the book that he/she donated!


This is a very special honor and a gift that keeps on giving to all who use the Valley Ridge Academy Media Center. If you would like to donate a book for your child’s birthday, please fill out the form below and send the form to the media center with the book or donation at least 2 weeks prior to your child’s birthday. Monetary donations should be submitted by check to Valley Ridge Academy (with 2 phone numbers) or you can pay with School Pay. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Ayrish Booysen at Shannon.AyrishBooysen@stjohns.k12.fl.us or call (904) 547-4090.


Please consider participating in this program. This can send a powerful message to our students - that reading and books are valuable to our school community!
