Library Happenings: Kids Giving Hope to Kids

kids hope 5

We have a very special display curently being exhibited here in the Leatherby Libraries: Kids Giving Hope to Kids. This collection of children’s artwork is the personal project of Lynn Matthews. Lynn is a registered nurse that has travelled to refugee camps in Northern Iraq, after meeting with the children in these camps she had an idea for a different type of Pen-pal. Lynn asks Afghan school children and American school children to create letters and drawings of hope and peace to deliver to the Syrian and Iraqi refugee children.
