December Reference Area Book Display



You’re in the home stretch! Winter break is just around the corner, and with it, holidays and celebrations for one and all.  Our December book display covers a wide range of typical holiday symbols and customs; there are book on the events themselves, as well as plants (including the ubiquitous poinsettia), food, drink, presents, and tips for entertaining. Even if all you are celebrating is the end of the semester and a break from papers and exams, we in Helm Library Reference wish you a happy, safe and enjoyable Winter Break!
