    ROCKLAND — The Rockland Public Library invites people to make a Valentine’s Day card (or many) to help send some love to local nursing home residents.

    There are two ways to do this: Make cards with supplies you have at home or make a card at the table set up at the library. 

    While RPL staff isn’t making them in advance this year, the Library staff can also make a "grab-n-go" card kit, on request (notice ahead of time is greatly appreciated).

    Cards should have an encouraging and uplifting message, not be religious or political in nature, and not be intended for a specific person or gender.

    The initiative begins on Wednesday, January 25 and all cards must be returned to the special drop box at the library by Wednesday, February 8. 

    The Library hopes to collect 500 cards this year.

    Part of the Library’s continuing Kindness Counts Initiative
