The exhibit showcases materials from one of our most unique library collections, the Barbara Loftus Perrone Night Before Christmas Collection given in memory of Charles C. Perrone. This collection includes rare and unique versions of Clement C. Moores famous poem, "A Visit from Saint Nicholas." THis exhibit showcases just a few of these beautiful pieces but other fun titles from the collection include: Teacher's Night Before Christmas, Garfield's Night Before Christmas, De Night in de Front from Chreemas, Soldiers' Night Before Christmas, to name a few. To see the titles in the Perrone collection head over to PILOT and do a keyword search for "Perrone." Remember books in Special Collections do not circulate, you will need to make an appointment to see the materials.
The exhibit also features our very own Serpentine Christmas Tree, made mostly from WCU's Serpentine Yearbooks found in Special Collections. Remember to check out our digitized collection of Serpentines online!
You can visit the exhibit on the 6th floor of the library during normal library hours. It will remain up through January. Stop on by for some Holiday cheer!
Here's also wishing WCU students good luck with finals and a safe and happy break! See you in the New Year!
