Have you ever wondered what it would be like to look back in 10 years to see how things have changed? If so come on by the Graubner Library and create your very own personal time capsule. All participants will need to bring in a container to be used as the capsule. The container can be a metal coffee can, plastic container, or a glass jar but the container must have a sealing lid.
Other suggested materials to bring would be:
- Photographs (no ink-jet printed photos as these will fade too much over time).
- Newspaper or magazine articles showing current events or trends.
- Letters from family or friends addressed to your future self.
- Mementos from trips, events, or gifts.
- Filled journals.
- Price tags, receipts, or a list of current costs for things.
- Ticket stubs from a concert, movie, or sports event.
- Old technology device such as an I-pod (preferably one that is not working since it will be sealed away for 10 years).
- Old school paper or report card.
- Favorite book, CD, or movie (again remember that this item will be sealed away for 10 years).
- Anything that is important to you that might be fun to see again after 10 years.
- Anything else you want.
**No materials can be used in the capsule that are liquid or organic as these will break down and make a mess of the inside of the capsule.**
A list of the suggested materials is available at the Adult Reference Desk or the teen side of the lobby Kiosk. Any questions call the Adult Reference Desk at (586) 752-0603 opt. 4.
