Tau Omega Chapter Holiday Book Exchange

B. Rose Lyons is president of Tau Omega Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi at Saint Joseph’s University.

BookExchange2Each December, Tau Omega Chapter at Saint Joseph’s University hosts a Holiday Book Exchange to assist its members in the creation of their future classroom libraries. Members place their names and certification areas into a hat during the November general meeting and pull another member’s name from the hat at random.

Instead of buying a generic gift, members buy a book relevant to the certification area of their chosen person, so that it can be used in a future classroom library. Many members choose specific books for sentimental value, such as a childhood favorite, while others choose books they feel a classroom library would be incomplete without.

The Holiday Book Exchange and party replaces the December general meeting and has consistently proven to be a great success. This night gives KDP members the opportunity to bond during the holiday season through baked goods, conversation, and a love of books.
