A Literary Christmas at UNR’s Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center

The folks at UNR’s Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center have outdone themselves (and as far as they can tell, everyone else) this year with a twist on the traditional Christmas tree — a 14-foot book tree made entirely of green and gold reference books.

It took staffer Alden Kamaunu and his helpers six hours and more than 600 books to create the display. Last year’s book tree was about half that size, and as far as UNR research librarians can tell, this year’s tree may be the largest of its kind in the world. Check out the time-lapse video of its construction below, and check out the full article.
