Holiday Card Drive

Saturday, September 30, 2017
Normal Public Library
Children's Department

If you'd like to put a smile on a troop's face this holiday season, please consider donating unused cards as part of our seasonal card drive. And don't forget to stop by in October, as we decorate all of the cards we've collected! All donated cards will go towards Operation Santa, an organization which prepares and sends cards to deployed troops. 

Although we appreciate all donations, please refrain from giving cards that contain religious messages or glitter. Envelopes are not necessary. Please bring all donations to the Children's Information Desk.
