Library Book Sponsorship

I am disappointed that I will not see you at the Year 11 Progress evening this Thursday. Many of you have generously sponsored library books over the last 4 years so please consider sponsoring again.  Below is the list of books bought recently that are available to be sponsored. Some of these titles are replacements for popular copies or new titles to the Library.  The amount sponsored is part of the price already paid and means that this extra income can be spent on more books and DVDs.  We have now moved to Parentpay and the payment option will go live on Thursday and you will see that you can specify the book you wish to sponsor and the amount to be taken from your account.  If you are spoilt for choice, please consider donating a small amount without giving a book title and this will be attached to a book of my choosing and I will let you know the title.  As always, there will be a bookplate placed in the book.  This can either be written by me or perhaps your child would like to come into the Library and sign it.  In the event that you choose a book that has already been sponsored, I will contact you to offer an alternative. The Parentpay page will be open until Monday (11th) evening.

Please let me know if you would like more information about the books or if you have any questions at library@cheshamgrammar.org 

Thank you so much for your support.
