Christmas tree made of books at a California college library

We single out the University of San Francisco as our favorite out of all the California colleges this time of year.  The Gleeson Library at USF created a Christmas tree in 2009 that we are big fans of.

The staff there decided to stack green National Union Catalog books from the library collection to make a Christmas tree.  They added some ornaments, paper snowflakes, and a paper star to decorate the tree.  They’ve been making one every year since 2009.  This year the tree was 9 feet 9 inches tall and they even strung lights on it.

Merry Christmas!
