The San Diego Law Library’s Bookmas Tree has been a popular holiday tradition since 2013. And while we can’t share our unique Bookmas Tree with you in person this year, we’ve created this Happy Holidays Bookmas Tree virtual background to share our holiday spirit with you. Please enjoy our virtual greetings and feel free to use as your virtual background this holiday season. Help us keep the Bookmas Tree spirit alive and spread some holiday cheer by sharing with friends, family, and colleagues.

Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!
