Libraries across the Kootenays are bringing back the lost art of correspondence. Join the club and we will match you up with someone to correspond with – either by email or the old fashioned way – snail mail. This is a great opportunity to encourage one another in a trying time!
Here is how it works:
Register by emailing Melodie Rae at and answer these four questions:
1) Are you a kid/teen/adult?
2) Do you want a kid/teen/adult pen pal?
3) What are your interests?
4) Do you want to correspond by email or snail mail?
Give us a few days, but eventually the library will match you with someone in the Kootenays who is a good fit for you and we will tell you a little about your new pen pal.
Then you write a letter or create some artwork for your new pen pal.
Send it by taking a picture of it and emailing it to Melodie Rae at
Send it to the library address:
Nelson Public Library
c/o Melodie Rae Storey/Pen Pal Club
602 Stanley Street
V1L 1N4
Whether by email or snail mail, we will forward your mail to your pen pal (your privacy will be protected – all mail will be forwarded through the library).
