Dear Community Friends,
Burton Elementary School is full of avid readers and we circulate numerous books a month. I am
writing to invite you to help us expand our library selection here at Burton. During this season of
giving, we would like your help in giving our students a library with a variety of books to expand
their knowledge of the real world.
Please consider supporting our students this year by choosing to purchase books from the list
attached. Your donations will include a special nameplate with your organization’s name to
recognize your commitment to the students here at Burton. We are also accepting monetary
donation to be used toward future book orders and media technology.
Your help will ensure that our students continue to have a wide selection of relevant and new titles
to checkout from the Burton Media Center. By investing in our children, you are providing them
with more opportunities to read, inquire, and explore new subjects. We look forward to hearing
from you soon and please do not hesitate to call or email with other questions.
