Sigma Tau Delta Hosts Bake Sale to Benefit the Library

Sigma Tau Delta, Seaver’s English Honor Society, is hosting a bake sale today, February 4th, and Thursday, February 6th, with all proceeds going towards purchase of a rare book for the library. The bake sale is being held from 9am-3:30pm on the 3rd floor of the CAC.

Last year, Sigma Tau Delta purchased a rare book for the library’s Special Collections for the first time. You can read more about the donation here. The group hopes to make this an annual tradition.

Please stop by the bake sale and support Sigma Tau Delta in their efforts to contribute to the library!

Sigma Tau Delta Donates Rare Book to Special Collections

On April 9, 2013, during the New Member Installation Ceremony for Sigma Tau Delta (the English National Honor Society on campus) the society presented Special Collections with a rare book to add to its holdings. This year, all of the proceeds raised from a St. Patrick’s Day bake sale went to the acquisition of a book for the department. The officers and the faculty sponsor decided to select a text by an Irish writer to keep with the theme of the bake sale. They picked a 1906 edition of Oscar Wilde’s Salome (Bodley Head published) with illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley.
