Auburn University Libraries has built their annual holiday book tree on the second floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. Constructed from volumes of the National Union Catalog, the library book tree stands over six feet tall and weighs close to a ton.

Through the fall finals period library users are invited to come see the tree and take advantage of this once-a-year snapshot opportunity that captures the academic spirit of Auburn. It is also a great place to take a picture of the December-graduating senior with cap and gown.

To help library patrons through the stress of finals, mornings and afternoons between Dec. 5 and 9 the tree will be periodically decorated with stress toy tigers for library patrons to take and use.

The AU Libraries holiday book tree is accessible during all regular library hours.
