Introducing Holiday Hellos

To connect our communities during this holiday season, children in Coquitlam are invited to write a holiday greeting, compile well-wishes or create an art project.

The Library provides ongoing support to seniors in the community through Library services and through partnerships with community organizations. We will be sending your Holiday Hellos to seniors that are registered customers of these services. However, if you know someone that you think would love a Holiday Hello, please contact
Christmas - Kid Letter

How to Participate

  1. Create a holiday greeting – it can be a card, a letter, a drawing, whatever you think would brighten someone’s day! Include your first name and age, but please do not include your last name.

  2. Drop it off at one of our locations by November 26.
