Letters to Lester at the Library
The Monroe Public Library is planning some exciting new renovations specifically for kids, teens, and families. You can read more about these changes by exploring the Impact Areas of this project.
Public libraries have never been just buildings with books, but destinations for lifelong learning. The library is one of Monroe’s most important assets—the heart of the community—and we want it to be the best it can be. We hope the young people and families in our area will get involved!
Letters to Lester at the Library gives children and teens the opportunity to participate in the library's fundraising campaign. Children are invited to write a letter (or a note, or draw a picture) to Lester, our library mascot, about why they love the library and why they love reading. If you wish, they can include a small donation, even pennies, in the envelope. Then, you can drop off the letter in the Book Return. All donations, no matter the size, are important and deeply appreciated.
The letters will be displayed at some point in the future, and may be shared on social media. They will also be put into a book that will be available for checkout.
Paper and envelopes will be distributed to students in the School District of Monroe and St. Victor's School, but any letters from children are welcome.
