Ironically, the “Gratitude Book” located near the circulation desk in Olin Library has been an unappreciated treasure since it arrived in May of 2011. The book invites students to add to the legacy with a simple note next to it that reads,
Gratitude is such a key element of the human experience, yet we forget to tell people how much their kindness and caring makes a difference in our lives. Make up for it in this space. Document your thank you.
Last week the Cornell Daily Sun wrote an article on the book. The hope is that the article will not only lead to additions to this living document of thanks and goodwill, but to make this idea of gratitude and thanks more present in their daily lives.
