    In the digital age, some forms of communication have become obsolete. However, Goshen Public Library believes that some forms of communication shouldn't be disregarded too soon. That's why they are writing letters to children, in the midst of our social distanced present. They believe written communication isn't a dead art, and can also have numerous benefits for the children and librarians involved.
