Christmas exhibition

The annual Christmas exhibition of the national department of the National and University Library of Iceland opened last Friday.

This year the exhibition is dedicated to New Year's Eve, associated with elves and other supernatural beings.

The exhibition contains several books about New Year's Eve, elves and various strange beings and events happening that night. It also has a display of Christmas and New Year's Eve cards along with interesting adverts from past decades where various items for New Year's Eve are advertised for sale, such as fireworks, powder boys, powder women, powder ogres, fireflies, suns, handheld flares and sparkles.

The exhibition is open to all during library opening hours and admission is free.
