The Cardinal Book Club

The St. Louis de Montfort Cardinal Book Club

The St. Louis de Montfort Cardinal Book Club was established as a way to celebrate a special occasion for your student by selecting a commemorative book to add to our permanent library collection.  It also helps supplement a limited library budget to continue to grow a broad, interesting, current, relevant collection to pique students' interest and cultivate a love of reading!   

It is a great way for parents or grandparents to give a unique and lasting gift to commemorate a special day in the life of your Cardinal—whether it be a birthday, honor roll, 1st Communion, or for Christmas. 


There is no substitute for books in the life of a child.

— Mary Ellen Chase

How does it work?

Your student may select from among a wide variety of specially curated books on reserve for Cardinal Book Club members only.  Once your grand/child has selected a book:

  • The book will be debuted to the class (if applicable) during the student's library period.
  • The student will be the very first one to check out the new book.
  • A commemorative bookplate with the child's name, the date and the occasion affixed to the inside cover. 
  • The Cardinal Book Club member will receive some additional take-home gifts, including a bookmark and pencil. 

If the child's birthday occurs over the summer—the book will be selected during the 1/2 birthday month (i.e., June birthdays would be celebrated in December; July birthdays would be celebrated in January, etc.).

For other special occasions, we would ask to have the form/payment submitted at least a month in advance.  Every effort will be made to have the book selection occur during the month of the special occasion. 

Please complete and submit the below form and then make your gift.
