Postcards from the Stacks

In my last post, I briefly mentioned the Save NYC Libraries postcard campaign. We've been diligently collecting postcards inside and outside the branches. Below is my favorite one so far, which was written by a 10-ish-year-old girl who frequently comes into my library. (I promise that neither my coworker Ally nor I coerced the girl into calling us "beautiful", "nice," or "kind." She's just that loyal.) 

Cute, right? If you want to send your own postcard in support of NYC libraries/protesting library cuts, you can send them to the address below. (Councilman Van Bramer of Queens is collecting them on behalf of the city council.)

Suite 205

We're trying to get all "Miracle on 34th Street" on their a$$es in terms of postcard volume, so thank you in advance if you send one. Good luck to us all. 


  1. Wow, that nine-year-old has better handwriting than I do...

    Good luck to all the libraries in NYC!

  2. Same here! (Although now that I think about it, she might be 10 now. I'm not sure. In any case, my handwriting is shameful.) Thank you!

  3. Just dropping you a little comment to let you know that I love your blog and I'm your newest follower :) Also, that sweet kid's handwriting is exponentially better than my own lol.

  4. Thank you so much, Kate! I'll check out your blog too!

  5. I've already sent my post cards last month. I just hope that the library will be saved by our post cards because I don't want it to close down.
