Grins for Grandbuddies

Tuesday, December 1     Add this event to your calendar
Location: Online

This January through March, the Middleton Public Library would like to send pictures and letters from Middleton children to grandbuddies living in memory care and retirement homes here in Middleton. Since many who live in this high-risk community can't have many (or any) visitors at the moment, sharing a drawing, a joke, a poem, or maybe just some kind words might help brighten up their day.

If your child would like to be part of this pilot program, please take a photo or scan the work you would like to have shared, then email it to Amy Perry, the Middleton Public Library's Community Engagement Librarian, at aperry@midlibrary.org. Include the child's first name and age if you would like to share that info with the seniors. Feel free to share up to three items per child.

Entries can be shared with the library from November 1 through February 1. To keep this program as safe as possible, only emailed entries will be accepted.

All items emailed will be compiled into a monthly letter that gets shared electronically with local memory care and retirement homes, and with Middleton seniors receiving homebound book deliveries. We can't wait to see what you send in and share it with our local grandbuddies!
