When you find the letterbox, please bring it to a table and open it. Carefully take out the contents inside, and you will find a notepad, a stamp, a pencil, an inkpad, and information about letterboxing. Stamp your own notepad using the stamp inside the letterbox and use the pencil to write any comments you may have in your own notepad. Then turn to a blank page in the library’s notepad and stamp it with your own personal stamp. When you are done, please place all of the items back inside the letterbox and return it to the exact place where you found it.
