Christmas in the Collections
The curators of the L. Tom Perry Special Collections have each chosen an item from their specialized area to highlight the variety of rare and unusual Christmas materials owned by BYU. Items you might expect such as a first edition of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and movie lobby cards from A Miracle on 34th Street share space with illuminated manuscripts and even HotWheels comics number 6, the one where an evil fake Santa causes trouble.
Items from church history such as a manuscript page of “The Christmas Revelation,” section 87 of the Doctrine & Covenants, and early photos of Yellowstone appeal to historians. There is a great selection of literature and children’s books.
Christmas in the Collections is open during most library hours. It is located on level 1 of the library in the entryway to Special Collections. The public is welcome and admission is free.
