Pen Pals Across the Pond
Pen Pals Across the Pond is a collaboration between the Bloomington Public Library in Bloomington, Illinois, USA, and the Clare County Library in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland. Children from the Bloomington-Normal area can write letters or draw pictures about anything they choose (including, but not limited to, food, books, toys, favorite past times, school, their families, etc.). The letters will be dropped into our collection box and then mailed to County Clare Library. County Clare has a similar box where they will collect letters to send to us. We will be displaying the Irish letters in the Children’s Department.
