In this time of social distancing, it might just be time to put pen to paper and brighten someone's day. Join Community Librarian Sami Kerzel, with the help of Creativebug, in exploring the art of letter writing.
Handwritten letters are incredibly personal and create a connection that modern forms of communication often lack. Words are put to paper and then the journey begins as the letter travels to the hands of the recipient. While letters are often sentimental, their history is long and their purposes varied. Whatever the purpose, flow is embedded into letters; sentence to sentence, thought to thought, from person to person, and from one place to another.
