Letters Home Exhibit

November – December, 2018

The Rampart Library District is planning an exciting exhibit to be displayed November and December of 2018 at the Woodland Park Public Library featuring the history of letter writing during wartime.

The November 2018 Exhibit is closed for submissions.

Submissions made from June 2018 forward will be prepared for our 2020 Exhibit.

We are asking for individuals in our local community to search through their own history- to explore your desk drawers, dressers, and boxes and ask family members involved in war efforts to contribute letters. We are looking for letters from any time period- from the Revolutionary War to the current campaign in Afghanistan. Letters written overseas or on the home front.  Letters, cards, postcards and telegrams from husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends, and children. Handwritten, typed, or in email form- all contributions are welcome. Letters and photographs will be scanned and transcribed. For more information and to contribute a wartime letter, please contact Michelle Petrazzoulo at 719-687-9281 or send an email to michelled@rampartlibrarydistrict.org.
