Pen Pals Needed

Did you know there is a Platteville Public Library in Wisconsin? It is our sister "twin" library, and it's full of staff and patrons as fun as our own. This summer, PPL (WI) encouraged their young patrons to write letters to other libraries around the world; we are one of them! We received a big bunch of them yesterday and had a wonderful time reading them.

If you would like to write back to these great kids (or if you want your kids to do it), please come into PPL (CO) for a copy of letter to which you can respond. Bring it back to us by Halloween, and we will send your letter on to Wisconsin.

Thanks for your help!
