HPU’s Walker Memorial Library hosts “Postcards to Home” display for students

Postcards to Home displayBROWNWOOD – September 13, 2017 – Howard Payne University’s Walker Memorial Library is hosting a postcard-writing display this week in its lobby area for students to write postcards to loved ones. The public is invited to stop by the library to view the display through this Friday, September 15.

HPU students of all classifications were invited to visit the library to fill out postcards to tell family and friends about their first weeks on campus this semester. To add humor and lightheartedness, the postcard proudly proclaims that the students have “found the library.” The library provided the postcards and the postage for the display.

“In this technology-driven age, we are always looking for ways to bring students to the physical library,” said Alexia Riggs, dean of libraries and associate professor of library science. “We decided, as in the past, to offer the students the opportunity to send some ‘snail mail’ home. It is an activity that many students look forward to each year.”

Library hours are Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday, 3:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. The library is closed on Saturdays.
