The Library’s Book Snowman and Journals Christmas Tree

As it is the season for festive decorations, this December the RAU Library has created a snowman made of books, and a Christmas tree made from green-coloured bound journals. Jessica Godber and Charles Maltby, both RAU students, gave us a helping hand and we thank them a lot for their effort and contribution.


In order to bring our bookish snowman to life we stacked white books in the shape of a snowman with three buttons on his chest, two buttons for eyes, and a “carrot” nose made from coloured paper. His hat is made from a black shoe box, black books and his smile from pom-poms. He also sports a stylish red scarf around his bookish neck!  He can currently be found resting on top of the maps cabinet, but please don’t touch him, he might melt!


Our Christmas tree made of journals is in the dissertations shelving area and is decorated with festive lights.


We have already had positive feedback, and we are pleased with how they turned out!

Merry Christmas to All from your RAU Library.

Quote of the Moment

“Libraries aren’t just for books. They’re often spaces that transform into what you need them to be: a classroom, a cyber café, a place to find answers, a quiet spot to be alone. It’s actually kind of magical. This week, we have stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required”
