Write/Video Miss Kim

The library is looking for some pen pals! Send a letter or a video to Miss Kim and receive a personalized reply! Please carefully read the detailed instructions below.

VIDEO

Send a 10 second-2 minute video clip saying hello to the library staff or to Miss Kim.

Send your video clip as a private message on the library’s Facebook page. Miss Kim will send a reply video within 24 hours.

Please limit your videos to once per week to give Miss Kim time to reply to everyone.

Alternatively, you may send your videos via email to plref@monarchlibraries.org. Keep in mind that email platforms cannot send large video files. The video may need to be only 10-30 seconds long.

WRITE

Write a letter to the library or to Miss Kim. Don’t want to write a letter? You can draw or color a picture. Grown-ups, you can write any words your child wants included.

Adults, to ensure your child receives a quality response, please include the following information in the letter:
• Include your return address both on the envelope and in the letter.
• Make sure your child’s name is legibly written somewhere in the letter.

Mail the letter to:
Plymouth Public Library
c/o Miss Kim
130 Division St.
Plymouth, WI 53073

Based on demand, your first letter will receive a personalized reply and a sticker to keep. Additional letters will receive a reply, personalized or standard, and a sticker to keep.

Please be patient. It may take up to 2 weeks to receive a reply, including time spent in the postal system both in receipt and delivery.

All this is new for the library! We appreciate your understanding if we need to smooth out any bumps in new library programs as we develop services that work for library patrons and library staff.
