Finding a postcard in our mailbox is pure joy! From the carefully handwritten messages, to the colorful images and stamps, postcards are little surprises that delight, inspire and connect us. The goal for the World Postcard Day is to bring that joy to as many people as possible on the anniversary of the postcard.*

At Fayette County Memorial Library, we want to share that postcard joy with our patrons! Sign up below to receive a beautiful handwritten postcard from the FCML staff during the month of October.

*Postcards were first officially issued and recognized by a postal operator on October 1, 1869. For more history of the post card, visit
