Spread A Little Cheer This Holiday Season!


The Garland County Library and the Oaklawn Center on Aging invite Garland County residents to write short letters and submit cards to elderly members of the community for the holidays. Send Some Cheer, the fall version of our Send Some Love Project will provide meaningful connections through written letters for Hot Springs’ homebound neighbors and those in assisted living facilities.  

Garland County Library Children’s Programmer Brook Olsen is reprising this letter-writing campaign after the popularity of the Send Some Love Project which took place in February of this year. “The pandemic has caused cancellations and delayed events that kept many people apart even into this year. Sending some cheer to those who are otherwise isolated this holiday season is a small thing we can do to show them we care and to hopefully brighten a person’s day,” said Olsen. “For this reason, the Library has partnered with the Oaklawn Center on Aging to provide hand-written notes, postcards, and holiday cards to our homebound and assisted living residents.”

Letters and cards can be provided in multiple ways: fill out a provided template available at the library; mail submissions to the Library at 1427 Malvern Avenue, Hot Springs, AR 71901; or submit via a form found here. Items mailed to the Library must be addressed to Garland County Library C/O Send Some Cheer Project. Submissions will be taken until Friday, December 17th and will be dispersed by the Oaklawn Center on Aging before the winter holiday.  For privacy reasons, please do not include personal information in submissions.
