St. Johns County Public Library System Develops Time Capsule

 

St. Johns County Public Library System Develops Time Capsule;
Residents Encouraged to Participate on October 26

 

St. Johns County, FL. – On October 26, the St. Johns County Public Library System (SJCPLS) will be asking, “What should people living in St. Johns County in 2065 know about those living in this community today?” As part of the “Viva Florida 500” program, and in honor of St. Augustine’s 450thBirthday, the library is now a vehicle for communicating with the future and leaving thoughts behind for posterity.

Anyone interested in leaving a message in the time capsule for those living in St. Johns County in 2065 are encouraged to participate, including citizens and public officials. There are two ways to contribute this Saturday. Either visit a local library and let St_Johns_County1.pngthem know you want to include a note, or visit the bookmobile between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ancient City Kids Day taking place at Francis Field in downtown St. Augustine. The Library System staff will be giving out special strips of archival paper to be used in the time capsule. Children of all ages are encouraged to write a note telling future readers about themselves, their communities, or their thoughts on the world of today.

The time capsule, provided by the State Library System, will be sealed, stored with the SJCPLS administration, and reopened for St. Augustine’s 500th Birthday in 2065. If anyone interested is unable to get to one of the libraries or the bookmobile, it is possible to write a note by accessing the library system’s website, www.sjcpls.org. The note will be printed out and put in the time capsule. For further information, contact your local library or visit the SJCPLS homepage at www.sjcpls.org.
