Birthday Book Program

Want a unique way to celebrate a child's birthday? Participate in the Norfolk Public Library's Birthday Book Program. Instead of a birthday focused solely on sweets and gifts, the Birthday Book Program gives you the chance to make a lasting gift to the library in a child's name.

For a donation of $15, a parent or child may choose a hardcover book from a selection of recently ordered titles. A bookplate commemorating the child's birthday and acknowledging the donor will be placed inside the book. In addition, the birthday boy or girl will receive a thank you bookmark and will be given the opportunity to be the first to borrow the book.

The monies received for these books will go into a fund to purchase more birthday books. The program is self-supporting and ever-changing as new books are bought throughout the year.

At your convenience, you may schedule a time to select a birthday book by calling Marissa Antosh, Senior Youth Services Librarian, at 508-528-3380 x5 or emailing
