Summer Pen Pal Program (Bilingual Activity) FULL
July 19 to August 9
For the third summer, our Library has been paired with the Jolys Regional Library in St-Pierre-Jolys, Manitoba. Register to be paired with a child similar in age at the Jolys Regional Library and we will send the letters on your behalf. There’s no need to write your address as the libraries will be the ones sending and receiving the letters. We will stick to first names only and will proof read the letters before sharing them. Letters can be written weekly, we will even supply you with writing prompts and materials. If you wish to continue communicating with your pen pal, the Library can no longer send the letters on your behalf and takes no responsibility afterwards. Ages 6-12.
How It Works:
-Please return your letter to the Library by Wednesday at 3:00 PM each week.
-We will forward a weekly package to our Sister Library.
-Pick up your letters at the Library (no specific date given due to uncertainty of Canada Post delivery)
