Have a Geeky Holiday!

I love my library.

Definitely for the books, where would I be without them? But also for all of the awesome events and programs that the library organizes to make me feel more connected with my community.

Right now the library is decorated with about thirty Christmas trees, all sponsored by community organizations. These organizations decorate the tree with club-themed ornaments and have informational displays and brochures by their tree. It makes the whole library feel festive, safe, and warm.

All of the trees are lovely, but there’s one that is my favorite.

This is the tree sponsored by my local chapter of Starfleet – the USS Wernher von Braun. I took one of the brochures home, and it made me smile for the rest of the day. I’m going to their meeting in January to see what the club is all about, and just to meet new people who like to talk Trek. 
Here’s a closer look at some of the ornaments:
Kirk overwhelmed with tribbles!
Astronaut outside the shuttle bay doors
Rocket launch, complete with fire and dust cloud at takeoff

Aren’t these awesome? I’m so glad my local Star Trek group has a tree at the library, so that I can daydream about having my own geek tree someday. 

Here’s hoping your holiday is full of the people you love and all of the geekery your heart desires!
