He is Calling You, Calling You... On The Saviour's Day!
Now that the library Christmas tree has arrived and Steven's fab advent calender has been unveiled (see our twitter page for each day's hand-crafted-by-staff door countdown) we have decided that it is time to festoon the normally staid archive with inappropriate glitter and twinkliness.

The flashing fairy lights may irritate Orkney Room readers and the tinsel on our computers does somewhat obscure our views of the screens but surely constant, low-level irritation is as much a Christmas tradition as Cliff Richard and Walford punch-ups?
Our decorations include candle-like lights, wreaths, poinsettias, a small yet glittery Christmas tree, fairy lights and delightful tinsel head-gear for our long-suffering Orkney Room busts.
Edwin never minds, he thinks it's just a bit of fun.
George seems indifferent but has never complained.
Stanley is unsure.
Eric is always absolutely furious. We just bung it on his head and then run away from those angry, angry eyes.
