Annual Pitts Book Tree 2021

December brings colder weather, final exams, and one of the great Pitts Theology Library traditions—the annual Pitts Book Tree! Pitts staff use books that are designated for our Spring book sale to construct the tree, which seems to get bigger (and more symmetrical) each year. Check out this year’s creation on the main entry level of the library, as well as a timelapse video that shows the creative process as well as our work in years past.

We hope you will stop by and see the book tree, and if you see some books you like, come back for our annual Friends of the Library Book Sale!  In response to popular demand, this year’s sale will be extended over two days from March 1-2, 2022. All details about the sale can be found online at

Happy holidays from all of us at Pitts Theology Library, Emory University!
