    My name is Heather Gaines and I am the event coordinator for adult programs at the O’Fallon Public Library located in Illinois. Our summer reading program will be kicking off soon and I would like to recruit you as a helper! The theme this year is “Have Book-Will Travel.”

    I had an idea that would bring America to our patrons in a fun and colorful way. For your part I would like to ask you to do one small thing. Would you be willing to send us a postcard from your great city, state, or even a unique local spot?

    Once collected, I will share them with all our patrons, with the hope that they too will see what amazing places there are to discover across America. On the back of the postcard, please write a small blurb about what location is pictured or about the state it is from.

    If for any reason you do not or are not able to participate in this endeavor, please email me back so I may contact another library in your home state.

    You may send more than one postcard if you so choose!

    Our address is as follows:

    O’Fallon Public Library
    Attn: Heather Gaines
    120 Civic Plaza
    O’Fallon, IL 62269

    Thank you and have a great day!
