Letter from A Librarian Program Hopes to Connect with Homebound Community

The Nevada County Community Library is announcing a brand new, old fashioned way to connect with its patrons during its current building closure. Librarians have started a letter writing campaign to reach those who may be unable to gather virtually with others.

“We wanted to give people who may be feeling isolated a little something to brighten their day and who doesn’t love getting a nice letter in the mail!” said Rachel Tucker, Branch Manager at the Grass Valley Library.

Staff at the Nevada County Community Library will be answering up to 100 letters or related emails it receives before May 20th with a friendly response and if requested a small piece of art. Those who wish to participate can mail a letter to the Madelyn Helling Library. The letter should include the letter writer’s age, mailing address, activities they enjoy and have been participating in during shelter in place, favorite book or type of book, any questions for the librarian, and whether they would like to receive a piece of artwork. Letters can be mailed to:

Letter from a Librarian

Attn: Sydney Joyce

980 Helling Way

Nevada City, CA, 95959

Participants can also call program coordinator, Sydney Joyce, to sign up for a letter at (530) 470-2747 or fill out a google form request at this website

Community members of all ages are encouraged to participate.
