Auburn University Libraries staff have built their annual holiday book tree on the second floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. Constructed from hundreds of volumes of the National Union Catalog, the library tree stands approximately seven feet tall and weighs well in excess of one ton. Through the fall finals period library users are invited to come see the tree and take advantage of a once-a-year snapshot opportunity that captures the academic spirit of Auburn. Also a great place to take a picture of the December-graduating senior with cap and gown.
