Description
These cards have been collected by Library Staff from books donated as gifts to the GTU Library. If, while processing the book for inclusion in the library collection, a holy card is found, it is added to the collection. There is no particular theme to the collection. Various languages are included. Of interest are the older, handmade cards and the memorial prayer cards for John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy.
Background
The collection consists of various types of holy cards and book marks, some handmade. Additions are made at infrequent intervals.
