There are lots of small battery operated lights on the market that would be excellent to use inside the shelves, placed on the "ceiling" of the shelf. Not every shelf would need illumination, but some strategically placed lights will make your display spectacular.
The invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440 made books more common. The need for their storage also become more pronounced. The oldest shelves in existence are believed to be in the Bodleian Library at Oxford University, they have been in place since the end of the 16th century. What surprises me though is the fact that the initial designs made then have remained till today, and are used as a standard for the design of the modern bookcases.
Bookcases are a great place to display some of your favorite Holiday decorations. Remove some of the books or objects that you keep in the space year-round. Put some of the books in boxes and store them for a month where you keep the holiday decorations.
