Making Merry in the Library

You might notice my high school library is decorated in much the same fashion as my house--Eclectic is a nice word don't you think?

Gargoyles from the Dollar Store.  A tin soldier from a garage sale.  Discarded library books used as props.  (Don't worry--titles include such things as Computer Programming in Basic and Race into Space (1963).) 

Add a few strings of Christmas lights and you have an Automatic Christmas Machine!

I was told the Crows were not festive.  My student Aides informed me that crows did not say "Christmas" to them.  I showed them--my crows are now wearing Happy Holiday ribbons around the their necks and the big one is carrying a copy of A Christmas Carol!

So there!

I barely have enough to decorate my house, and you decorated your house AND library! Very cute! And I love the crows!

You are the coolest school librarian ever. A crow reading Dickens? That's pretty deep.

I think the crows are a lovely holiday addition :)
