Fresno State's Henry Madden Library is the place to be if you want to get into the Christmas spirit and support a good cause.

Visitors can look at themed Christmas trees and have the chance to buy one.

There are eight differently-decorated Christmas trees at the library to see.

One is decked out in Bulldog gear, complete with mascot ornaments.

Another is a winter wonderland tree adorned with black, silver, and white colors.

Others are more traditional like the Holly, Jolly Christmas display and a nativity tree.

The trees will be auctioned off tonight to benefit programs and services at saint agnes medical center.
