Winter is officially here, and as it gets colder and snow and slush begin to blanket the streets, it becomes difficult to enjoy the beauty of the season. But despair not! You can stay warm and cozy in Watson Library without missing a moment of winter's splendor. Grab some of the wintry items below and head on over.
Or follow in the snowy footsteps of the Impressionists and delight in the effets du neige (while avoiding frostbite, of course).
You could also enjoy a steaming mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows on top, though we hope there's more cocoa in yours than in Rob Scholte's below. (Full disclosure: we sadly do not allow hot chocolate in Watson's reading room.)
Curl up in our comfy seating near this roaring fire and while away a dark afternoon with a good book.
Enjoy the biography of Wilson A. Bentley, a man who spent his life photographing over five thousand individual snowflakes.
Or find inspiration for some redecorating with these snow-flecked decorative arts from Japan.
However you choose to enjoy the season, remember—if the weather outside is frightful, our reading room is always delightful!
