Hindsight 2020 Postcard Project @ the SML

What would you want people of the future to know about what it was like to live through these historic times? The Hindsight 2020 postcard project is an opportunity to share and preserve your thoughts. Stop by the postcard station at the Scranton Memorial Library, write down your response, and place it in the box. The postcards will be collected, posted online, and preserved for future generations in the Yale University Library’s archival collections.

Postcards will be available at the library until Sept. 28, and you can also share reflections through the project website at 2020newhaven.com. Everyone is invited to participate!
