Have you ever had pen pals?
This is our third year doing Leaping Letters, the letter writing program between
an elementary school class and senior citizens. This year, we paired up with a 1st
grade class at Hanby Elementary and everyone is enjoying getting to know each
other. We’re even hoping to bring the two groups together to meet!
If you would be interested in writing letters to an elementary school child next
school year, just let us know and give us a call at 614-259-5034. It is a great way
to connect with the community and keep up on your letter writing skills. And
we do all the delivering for
you, so no postage re-

Have you ever received an item from us that had a
sticker on it entitled either “SearchOhio” or “OhioLink”?
Those stickers indicate that the item you received is
from an Ohio library other than Westerville’s.
SearchOhio items come from public libraries; OhioLink
items come from college libraries. In most cases, these
items are not renewable so please check with Outreach if you want to
keep them more than one month. If you need us to reorder something
for the next month’s deliveries, just let us know. Please note that if you
want to order your own material on-line from SearchOhio or OhioLink,
please place your order exactly two weeks prior to your delivery date.
That allows plenty of time for the items to come in and be ready for us to
bring them right to your front door.
*Julie Kerns is also a NOTARY and will be glad to come to your home to notarize items for
you. Please call us if you need this service. 614-259-5034.
