Yesterday was an emotional day at the copier scanning a lunchbox full of cards, notes, photos, and more that we have found inside donated books. And now it’s a Pinterest board!

If you’ve ever left a sonogram, graduation photo, or death certificate (seriously!) inside a book and then brought it to Housing Works, you might be anonymously Pinterest-famous now. Enjoy!
