Cards of Cheer

Accepted at all branch locations through August 2021.

Make someone’s day with a card! Cheer up Library members who are homebound or experiencing isolation due to COVID-19 by creating a card that is creative and cheerful. Cards can be made at your own pace at home or while visiting a library location.

  • Use 8 ½ x 11 folded paper (card stock works best, but regular paper or construction paper will also work)
  • Be creative (use markers, colored pencils, etc.), but do not attach items or décor; no glitter.
  • Write a simple message that is encouraging and kind. Please keep messages non-religious
  • If you put the card in an envelope, please do not seal it.
  • Original, one-of-a-kind cards will be accepted. Please do not submit copies.
  • You may include your first name, but do not include any other identifying information.
Example Messages
  • Hello!
  • Have a great day!
  • Enjoy your book!
  • Thank you for being a Library member!
  • Any general cheerful message with brighten the day of a Books-By-Mail member.

Thirty (30) minutes volunteer credit will be given for each original card made. When completed, bring to your local branch’s Children’s and Teen Section staff.
