We are excited for another year of our pawsome Loring Birthday Book Club tradition!

Celebrate your child's birthday and support the Loring PTO with a Birthday Book! Have your child choose a book that they'd like to donate to the Loring Library in their honor. There will be a sticker on the inside cover that notes who it is from, so everyone who checks it out will know who picked it for years to come. We will also give a shout out in our newsletter each month to those who have participated.

Find out all about it here!
