The Teal World in Kimbel Library
It’s Homecoming Week at CCU and Kimbel Library jumped at the chance to participate in the fun by entering the office decorating contest. Library staff decorated the library’s foyer area in accordance with this year’s Homecoming theme, “The Teal World: Coastal”.
The display is a teal colored dorm room made with extra library furniture, cardboard and paper. All of the materials used in the display are recycled or recyclable. The bed, TV, entertainment stand, and end tables are completely made out of cardboard and the rug is paper woven together. The knobs on the drawers are made from the caps of recycled water bottles. The handle on the entertainment stand is the handle from the bucket that is the top of the lamp.
If you look closely, you’ll see film gems such as “The Chauncy of Oz” and “The Good, The Bad and the Chauncy” as well as CCU t-shirts and other items.
Please stop by and take a look at Kimbel Library’s display and be sure to greet the two cardboard teal students who have made the teal dorm room their new home.
