Bookadoodle club hosts book swap


The Bookadoodle club hosted a book swap event from Nov. 29-30 during office hours. A selection of books from different genres was set on a table in the atrium such that students could place a book that they brought and take a book from the table.

The main purpose of the Bookadoodle club is to not only meet and read books together, it is also to share their interest in reading with the SIS community. Thus, the club aimed to help students discover new books who otherwise may not have the time to do so.

“We tried to promote reading in the school community through the book swap,” Yoo-Joo Cha (10), President of Bookadoodle club, said. “I noticed that I had a lot of books I didn’t read anymore and thought it would be nice if they could be shared with someone else who would be more interested.”

Although the event’s intent was for students to quickly swap books, a few students were encouraged to simply take a book if they did not have a book to swap with to continue motivating them to read.

“The biggest challenge I think was people saying they did not have a book to swap,” Tim Gardes, advisor of Bookadoodle club, said. “In the future, we may focus on [getting people to] just take a look. It doesn’t really matter if you have a book to swap if that is the main impediment.”

The Bookadoodle club plans to finish reading the book that they have picked to read, “Murder on the Orient Express,” and hold a discussion for high school students and teachers on Thursday during Activity Period.
