Pen Pal Program

The Exeter Community Library in Reading, Pennsylvania has a very successful Letter Writing Social program going on at their library.


In conjunction with their monthly events, they also facilitate a Pen Pal Program and some of their patrons have been corresponding with Exeter England! There are so many participants in PA looking for someone to correspond with, , that they've reached out to our library to see if anyone would like to participate!



There is an application available in our library or online, fill it out, bring it to us and we'll send it along to Pennsylvania where the staff there will hopefully find you a match among their lively bunch!


This program is related to, but not necessarily part of our Letter Writing Social. We are just matching you up with someone to write to on your own time. Amy just got her first letter, it was so fun to get personalized mail rather than advertisements and bills!

Yoga Class

$10 per class​


Take some time to relax and join Aimee Fontaine of sun star yoga in the library for a mixed-level yoga class for adults


New students are always welcome! Modifications and variations make this a perfect class for beginners as well as experience yoga practitioners.


Please bring your own yoga mat.

No registration required.


If the weather is questionable, please check the library's Facebook page for cancellations.

Library Tips & Tricks

Calendar of Events

We've added an improved Calendar of Events to our website. You will be able to share events on your social media and add them to your personal calendars.


We do not usually share community events on Facebook (there's just so much coming at you on Facebook already!) But we are adding a feature to our calendar where you can share your own community events there. We are working on the specific approval guidelines, but they most likely will be the same as our community bulletin board - events must be open to the general public, be a community event or fundraiser. For-profit business events will not be immediately included, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
