Holiday Hellos!

Christmas Drawing

We're connecting our communities during this unusual holiday season by sharing some joy.

Children in Coquitlam are invited to write a holiday greeting, compile well-wishes or create an art project that the Library can include in care-packages. These care-packages will be distributed to seniors and older adults in our community!

What we will do with your Holiday Hello

We are delighted to support seniors in our community throughout the year through Library services and our partnerships with community organizations that serve seniors. 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
