Card making for seniors is back!  This session of card making is: Valentine’s Day cards.

The Avon Library and the Avon Youth Services Bureau will provide card-making supplies for you to make cards for the senior citizens of Avon to bring them cheer and hope.

We are partnering with the Avon Youth Services Board to distribute them to the Avon Senior Citizen Center, assisted living facilities, and local oncology centers.

Please use your creativity and your words to spread some cheer for senior citizens. Send messages of support and encouragement.

Who can make cards? The volunteer card making program is open to children, teens, adults, and families.

Important dates:


  • Bags will be available for pickup near the 2nd floor Kid’s Desk, while supplies last!
  • Pickup begins Wednesday, January 17 at 10am.


  • We ask that cards are returned by Sunday, February 4th by 4:45m, to allow time for delivery before the holidays.
  • Return your cards in a bag with your name on it to the front entrance of the library.

What’s in the bag?

*Each card bag contains 10 pages of a variety of colors and assorted stickers!

*Please note that exact sticker varieties vary for each bag*
