The employees at HSL put up the two Christmas trees last Friday.

The first tree is the Annual Mitten Tree at HSL. There’s only lights on this tree so that you can put your donations of mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, and socks as decorations! Please donate items to decorate our tree!

The staff had some difficulty getting the lights to work on this tree. We had to add additional lights since the lights that come on the tree are not working.

Kevin had the challenge of installing the star on the top of the tree. He is the tallest so he was nominated for the job! He did a great job making the star look nice on the top of the tree.

 

 

 

 

 

The second tree is in the reading room on the third floor. The staff decorated this tree with ornaments collected throughout the years, and another star on the top too.

Got this image of the mitten tree from the outside of the library, while it was snowing on Friday afternoon.
