Merry Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas 2016

It’s already that time of year again—time to celebrate the birth of Christ and enjoy the company of our family members!

Cold weather and snow mean that it is also time to find a cozy seat and catch up on some research and reading. Please enjoy this year’s lineup of our best content.

We’re looking forward to serving you again in 2017. Merry Christmas!

Best of 2016
