Fulton County Library System invites patrons of all ages to participate in our Library Post Office.
What can you do at a Library Post Office?
Kids are invited to write a postcard answering a prompt and send it to another participating branch.
Once they’ve written a postcard, they put it in the mailbox provided.
Library staff will monitor the cards for appropriate content and send them for delivery with our fantastic courier service.
The branch receiving the postcard will display the postcards for their patrons to read.
Curious about where these branches are? You can check on a map, often posted as part of a branch display, check our website, and maybe even visit!

Why A Library Post Office?
As we navigate this pandemic, patrons are looking for ways to engage with others even as they are hesitant to spend a lot of time indoors with other people.
We have been inspired by our colleagues in our many branches and their creative approaches to encourage self-expression in writing, drawing, and reading.
For our Library Post Office, we’ve also been inspired by other, similar programs in other systems such as Speedy Delivery in the Library and Little Letters.
