Pen Pal Club
Updated June 15, 2020
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Send it to the library address:
Nelson Public Library
c/o Melodie Rae Storey/Pen Pal Club
602 Stanley Street
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).
