Santa Claus is visiting JCU's Cairns Campus Library

There was much surprise in the Cairns Library on Friday 4th December morning! Santa Claus had visited the library the day before and enjoyed it so much that he decided to stay here with his sleigh. Security is still searching for his missing reindeer in the forests surrounding the library.

After the successful and impressive Christmas tree created with more than 240 books last year, the challenge was on for this year's Christmas display. A creative team of Library staff have constructed Santa Claus with his sleigh, made with, you guessed it, bound serials!

A great unveiling of the two ephemeral sculptures for Christmas was organised in the JCU Cairns Library foyer! The reaction from Library visitors has been positive. Come in and see for yourself.

Now, the two major questions remaining are:
  • How many books in these sculptures? A prize for the person who picks the right number,
  • and
  • What’s coming next year?
