THE ACTUAL LIBRARY BOOK CHRISTMAS TREE

This library book tree first became a tradition at the library in 1950. Originally local firefighters decorated pine trees on the library grounds. Community members sang carols around them. Then, in 1998 for the new opening of a new library building, former Friends of the Library Executive Board Member, Jackie Winkler, planned this Christmas tree project. This current tree is adorned with fifty handmade, hand-painted book ornaments representing many of the world's classic books.
