During library time in the week of his birthday, the student will be presented with the new book and a special certificate. When the book is returned, it will be enjoyed by Saint Benedict students for years to come!

Summer birthdays can be celebrated anytime. Schedule your purchase for a random surprise or for presentation during the first or last weeks of school. Plan ahead and make your purchase one month prior to the special day.
