We copied this from pinterest, and it looks almost the same. The topper up close -
these page trees were on each end cap in adult fiction and non-fiction - twelve in all.
The main tree in front of the big window isn't that big, but Katie found a very large star in her basement (the girl is BIG on decorating, and good at it), which made a huge difference hanging above it.
I found it difficult to get a good photo of this, but it draws the eye very well; also looks beautiful at night driving by. All the ornaments are made of book pages: fancy star/snowflakes, a paper chain and little banner. Also, Cheryl found some ornaments she'd made a few years ago, clear balls with curled paper inside.
For a small tree, I made several of these -
we were running out of time, and those were quick and easy.
Here's how Katie's small book tree ended up -
At the end of the hall, we put another tree with some blue lights, then somebody made some stars.
A menorah display near the elevator
and a book menorah, too
made with the Encyclopedia of Judaica, which happened to be dark blue.
Trisha did a good job with the columns in the children's department.
Now they have pale blue snowflakes on them. And two columns downstairs plus one upstairs are nutcrackers.
Doesn't he look great? Katie did most of it. You can see here in the background how effective that big star is on the main tree.
A rather scrawny tree got a funky look with just two ornaments on it
Can you tell what they say? Read and Books. And that's all for now.
