Books in Celebration

Give a Book to the Sippican School Library!

What is Books in Celebration?

Books in Celebration is a program that has been in place at our library for years.  It allows community members and parents to purchase pre-selected titles for our school library collection.  Purchasing a book for our library collection is an excellent way to honor our students, our community, and our future.  Your donation enables countless children hours of reading enjoyment.  What better way to mark a special occasion?

Purchase a book to celebrate a child’s birthday, a staff member’s retirement, a wonderful school year, or any other reason you can think of!

 How Can I Find Out Which Titles are Currently on the Wish List?

Visit The Bookstall here in Marion, MA. A display of books from our Wish List is arranged in the store.  Please contact Mrs. Barrett if you have any other questions about the process.
