Lower School Library Fund    

For many years, Norfolk Collegiate lower school parents and grandparents have been honoring their children and grandchildren on their birthday by contributing to our Library Fund.

When we receive a Library Fund contribution, our librarian will select an age-appropriate hardback book and present it to your child or grandchild for his or her birthday. Students are always excited, not only to receive special acknowledgement and their book with a special bookplate during a lower school assembly, but also an entry in the library’s online catalog describing their special book.  

Donate to the Library Fund today to ensure that your student receives a birthday book during the school year. 

Purchases made possible by previous library funds include: 

  • Hardback books for the lower school library, each with a dedication plate honoring the birthday boy or girl. This is an ongoing tradition at the Lower School.   
  • Digital books for the library collection which may be checked out and read online.   
  • TumbleBooks, an online talking and animated book collection for elementary school students. The lower school teachers requested this product for its engaging stories and accompanying curricular materials. The animated books can be shown in teachers’ classrooms on the SMARTBoards for an even more exciting literacy activity.    
  • Apple TV®s for all of the lower school teachers - allowing them to wirelessly project images and sounds from their new iPads® onto the SMARTBoards in their rooms. Students can also project their work and projects, created on student iPads®, onto the SMARTBoards in their classrooms and library.
