During this difficult time in our nation’s history, loneliness and isolation can negatively impact our individual lives and the life of our community as a whole. To help defeat the negative effects of the Coronavirus, Germantown Community Library is starting a “Dear Friend” Campaign.
This campaign will connect Germantown youth with Germantown senior citizens (age 60 and above) in a pen pal letter writing program. Through letters, participants will learn about and encourage each other, which can be a tremendous blessing during these difficult times.
With parental/guardian supervision, Germantown youth up to 18 years old will be connected with a senior Germantown resident (age 60 and above).
The library will verify participants’ addresses and their desire to participate. Then, the library will pair each participating youth with a participating senior citizen.
