Paperwhites in the Conservatory Library

The month of January can be very busy in the Conservatory Library as we shelve all the materials returned in December, take items off reserve for last semester, and we put materials on for the coming semester. With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to watch paperwhite bulbs grow as we march towards Spring semester.

The bulbs usually take about four weeks to bloom, so they should be in full blossom with the close of winter term.

We're forcing these bulbs in gravel and water. Check in with us from time to time to read about reshelving, reserves, and paperwhites!
