Pen Pal Program

The library needs your help to keep your fellow community members who may be feeling particularly isolated during quarantine engaged.

The Pen Pal program will connect Orland Park residents with members of local assisted-living facilities and home bound library patrons. With letters or cards, participants will learn about each other’s lives, interests, and activities; and most importantly practice social distancing, not social isolation.

The Pen Pal program is open to adults and youth (with parental/guardian supervision). This is a great screen-free activity for younger library patrons, and the library would love for you to take advantage of this low-tech opportunity!

If you are interested in participating, please email with your name and phone number. The library will contact you to verify your address and get you paired to be a pen pal.
