BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB
生日書俱樂部

Would you like to honor your child on their birthday and help the library program as well? You can do this by donating NT$500 to the library and choosing a new library book as your child’s Birthday Book. The cost reflects the average price of new hardback books. A special name plate with your child’s photo, name, and current grade level will be placed in the front of that new library book to commemorate it as your child’s Birthday Book.  

Celebrate your child’s birthday by purchasing a book!

This year, we will put the book selection online at: go.mca.org.tw/macbirthdaybookclub

Starting Thursday, September 2 at 9:00am, you can access the Birthday Book Club website and select a Birthday Book Club book for your child. After you choose a book, the library will put a payment envelope in your child’s backpack to take home to you. Please pay within 1 week. The last day for Birthday Book selection will be Friday, September 10.

We will present the Birthday Book selection to your child and they will be the first to check out the new book. They will also receive a card and small gift from the library on their birthday or half-birthday (if their birthday is in the summer). Other students, for as long as the book remains in the library, will be able to see your child’s name and photo in the book after your child has read the book and returned it to the library.

If you would like to participate in this optional event, please choose a book from the website and fill out the form. If you have any questions, please let us know.

您想在慶祝您孩子生日的同時並幫助圖書館嗎?我們提供給您一個好方法,只要您捐款500元給圖書館就可以選擇一本新書成為您孩子的生日書,這個價格同等於市面上的精裝書籍。我們會使用特別的名牌放上您孩子的姓名與照片以及他的年級在書本的封面以此來呈現此書為您孩子的生日書。
今年我們會將所有新進的新書在線上呈列:go.mca.org.tw/macbirthdaybookclub
從九月二號星期四早上9點開始,您就可以進入生日書的網站並為您的孩子選擇所喜愛的書籍,在您確認選擇了生日書之後,圖書館會將請款單放在信封內讓您的孩子帶回家去,請在一週內付款完成。此活動的截止日為九月十號星期五。
我們會呈現您所選的生日書給您的孩子並且他會是第一優先可以借閱此書,另外您的孩子在生日當天或是半歲生日當天(若您孩子的生日是在暑假) 也會收到圖書館準備的卡片以及小禮物。當您的孩子歸還他的生日書後,此本書將會繼續擺放在圖書館,並讓其他的孩子能看見您孩子的名字和照片在此書的封面上。
如果您有興趣參與這個活動,請上活動的網頁上點選書籍並填寫表格。如果您有任何疑問,請不吝惜向我們詢問。
