Celebrate a special occasion such as your child's birthday by becoming a "Friend of the ROE Library."

The ROE Library offers a special way to recognize a child's birthday and other special occasions while also at the same time benefiting our school. Students and families are invited to select a book from the wide variety of books on the ROE Library Wishlist. You may also donate a book that is not on the wishlist by contacting the ROE Librarian at 713.942.1460 or by email.

By joining the "Friend of the ROE Library,"your child will:
  • Choose a book to be added to the Library collection.
  • Have his or her name on a commemorative bookplate inside the cover of the book.
  • Be the first one to borrow the new book.

ROE students will enjoy your donated book for years to come! You can even donate a book for any other special occasion such as a family member's birthday, in memory of someone special, or 'just because.'

Here's how to join:

Select and purchase a book from the ROE Library Wishlist. When you check out through, be sure to send your order to:

River Oaks Elementary School
c/o of the ROE Library
2008 Kirby Drive
Houston, TX 77019

...and we will prepare it for your child's birthday or other special occasion.

Make sure to include in the note field-- your child's name, details of special occasion-- or birth month and day, as well as any additional information you would like us to add to the personalized ROE Birthday Book Club book plate.

Your child will be the first to check out "his or her" book!

You can just print out this page and fill in the information and send it to school, or copy the section below into an email and send it electronically to the Librarian for further notification of your donation.
