Library christmas tree 2006

    Newer Older

    Christmas Tree made of books. I took this photo at the University library last year and was sure to tell one of the librarians how good an idea this was. As far as I remember the books were old reference books that weren't used much anymore - they are bound to be available online
    Keep in mind that this was just a picture i took at the local University Library in Aalborg - www.aub.aau.dk/ - thanks for the nice comments and making this a fave.

    Thanks again for all the fav's and coments! 93000+ wievs... it baffles sceince!
    Merry Christmas and a library new year to you all!

    A funny coincidence story:
    Back in 1999 a friend and I did a homepage on stories by our favorite Duck cartoonist, Don Rosa.
    This last Christmas 2008 a collegue to my friend's wife found THIS photo online, and showed it to her, saying "Now this is my kind of Christmas tree" - and then she showed it to my friend. It's a small world after all :-)

    robjam53, Sweet_chicago1, tonyone07, and 154 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Our reading group enter the local Christmas tree festival each year and this might be something to aim for.

      Found this photo too: www.flickr.com/photos/honeythorpe/5243034127/ ;-)

      And if others find the photo other places, do notify my and I'll be proud.
      Would you like to use the photo - take the time to ask me, and I'm likely to let you - receiving the credit for the photo - and all credit for the idea still goes to AUB in Aalborg.
