Just Sayin’

Reno campus’ towering holiday book tree (no reading involved)

LA Times – “One librarian, two helpers and 348 old books equals one huge holiday book tree. Usually those elements would add up to books stacked neatly on a shelf, but campus librarian Erin Fisher and others instead constructed a 9½-foot green “tree” in the atrium at the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center at the University of Nevada, Reno. The tree, made from pre-1950 National Union Catalog reference books with evergreen covers, grew from 10 books placed in a circle. Then the stacking began. It’s a stunner, quite sturdy-looking (I did a quick perusal of “book trees” online and found a lot of sloppy ones, especially if you open the pages of books to stack them), and who doesn’t like books?”
