The holidays are officially here! We may all be celebrating differently this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate. Fordham Libraries’ collections include many fun, interesting, and beautiful holiday books available for checkout now. From a history of Christmas cards, to a look at the Jewish Museum’s stunning Menorah collection, to a guide on the food of Kwanzaa, the library has it all! There are print books as well as ebooks currently available. Also available to stream from home, using your Fordham IT ID, are classic holiday movies and albums. Watch Jimmy Stewart lasso the moon in It’s a Wonderful Life or listen to Bing Crosby croon your favorite carols all while sipping some hot chocolate on your couch. Follow the links below to access the catalog records for each item and enjoy. Stay safe and happy holidays to all!
