From McDermott Library with Love

Although we are deferring our annual Valentine Snacks and Crafts event to 2022, the Eugene McDermott Library and the Special Collections & Archives staff want to wish you all a wonderful Valentine’s Day. It’s been an interesting year, to say the least, and we hope you can take some time to put pen to paper and write some appreciative words to friends, family, yourself, or strangers. Mail your letters domestically with the new Love Stamp from the USPS, internationally with the Global Forever Chrysanthemum Stamp, or just write in your journal for some self-care. If you’re unsure who to write to, consider a member of our military or someone who could use a friendly note.


Here are a few organizations to spread the love:

Military Veterans and Soldiers
Letters to the Elderly
Write on Campaign
More Love Letters
