Tarleton Thursdays: Did You Know?

Just in case you didn’t make it to the library to see the Christmas tree display here it is!

The Acquisitions department created their tree using Kay Wiley's collection of ladybugs. Library Administration created a "princess" tree. The Cataloging/Processing area decorated their tree with miniature books, complete with call numbers and barcodes, pockets, spiral binder combs, printer paper, and created a cataloging record for the tree!

Circulation and ILL decorated their tree to honor all of our United States armed forces, using yellow ribbons, photos, and insignia from each branch. Library Environmental Services created a lovely traditional tree with glass balls and tinsel.

The Periodicals tree was decorated with mock magazine covers featuring all of the periodicals staff. The Reference staff used glass balls, mardi gras beads, unique Christmas decorations, and books. The Special Services area created their tree using Tarleton purple and mini books. And last but not least, Systems and Web Services created their tree using various computer parts, with a keyboard piece as a tree skirt!

We have decorated the little trees several times in the past and it is always a fun thing for our departments and staff to do! The first time we decorated the little trees for the display case was in the 1980's!

We hope you have a happy and safe holiday! See you next year!
