Love Letters to Libraries

Send your love to the quiet champions of reading and tell them why they are important to you.

Did a library inspire your love of reading, give you a quiet place to study or open the door to new places? We want to explore the impact libraries have on our lives and tell them just how important they are. Drop them a line to say you care by downloading our letter template below, penning your letter and sending it straight to your local or school library.
