An arrangement of postcard images

Akron Postcard Club

Enter the magical world of postcards. Whether you want to look at postcard images, read old messages, talk collections, or make your own postcards, the Akron Postcard Club is the place for you. We use the David P. Campbell Postcard Collection to explore the history of the postcard and to inspire our monthly meeting themes. We tend to alternate between collections exploration and postcard creation, check the theme descriptions for details.

Meetings are open to anyone curious about postcards – students and community members alike. We meet the last Wednesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:00pm ET in the Postcard Library at the Institute for Human Science and Culture at the Cummings Center (located on the 4th floor).

The club is free to attend, and new members receive a “welcome package” of postcards to send or collect.

Next meeting:
Wednesday, August 31, 2022 from 6:00pm - 7:00pm ET
