Christmas Comes to the Baylor Libraries

Dec. 9, 2011

Want an early dose of Christmas? Come grab your favorite holiday Starbucks drink and enjoy the Christmas tree and poinsettia décor in the Moody Allbritton Foyer. Choose between Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Latte or Caramel Brulee Latte, or try all three to get your taste buds back in the Christmas swing.

Hot drink in hand, take the short stroll over to Poage Legislative Library to truly immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Christmas. Step into a variety of winter wonderland scenes that make up the Poage Christmas Village Exhibit. Amidst a backdrop of Christmas tunes that fill the room, the collection features four miniature Christmas village setups with snow-capped roofs and glowing shop windows that remind one of simpler times.

Already cozy? Vintage Christmas Greeting Cards dating back to the early 1900s are just a click away. Whether "Merry Christmas" is best spelled out for you through snowmen, fireplaces or joyful children, this Texas Collection online exhibit has them all. Click here to pick out which card you would have used to greet your loved ones from afar in the early 20th century.
