Happy Holidays from Milpitas Library

'Tis the season to be jolly and use ye old National Geographics to make a Bookmas Tree!

First, get a cart and load it up with a lot of (dusty, old) green National Geographics.
Then, carefully stacking them on the Children's Help Desk. Build it nice and high,
just like a real tree.

Building a "Christmas tree" out of bound National Geographic books

Dig in the storage closet and have your garlands and box of decorations ready.

Marizta decorates!

Wrap the garlands, just right....

Putting the star on the top of the tree

 Climb up on the Children's Help Desk and position the star. Make sure you have someone to guide you and get the star just right. 

Checking all of the decorations and making sure everything is just right.

 Add a few more sparkly ornaments up on top...and...
