Dear Delaware: our Pen Pal program

We’ve teamed up a series of public libraries in Delaware, USA for a Pen Pal program! It’s a chance to make new friendships and learn about another person’s culture and life experiences.

How does it work?

You can join the program anytime, simply by filling out a sign-up form. This program is open to adults, teens and children over 5 years old.

From there, we’ll pair you with a similar participant from Delaware – you’ll be notified via email of who your pen pal is and what their interests are. Then write your letter and bring it to the library – we’ll take care of the international postage and you’ll be notified when to pick up your pen pal’s response.

Begin meaningful conversations and experience the enduring joy of receiving snail-mail!
