Send Your Fan Mail to Local Olympians

Show your support for the four County athletes who are going for the gold at the Summer Olympics. Every library branch has established a station where you can deliver fan mail or messages to the athletes.

Montgomery County is home to four of the 11 athletes representing Maryland on the 2016 U.S. Olympic roster. More than 10,500 athletes from 204 nations are expected to participate in 28 sports, including the highly anticipated reinstatement of golf and rugby.

  • Jack Conger from Rockville will be competing in the 4x200m freestyle swimming event. Conger graduated from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in 2013.
  • Katie Ledecky, former gold medalist from the 2012 Olympics will compete in the 200m freestyle, 400m freestyle, 800m freestyle and 4x200m freestyle. Ledecky, from Bethesda, graduated from Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in 2015.
  • Ashley Nee from Bethesda will compete in the canoe slalom. Nee graduated from Northwestern High School.
  • Helen Maroulis, a former Col. Zadok Magruder High School student, is a wrestler who will be competing in the freestyle 53 kg.
You can stop by any of the library branches to drop-off your letters or cards. The fan mail stations will be available during regularly scheduled hours through August 21. The letters will be delivered to the athletes after the Olympics.

My daughter would like to write a letter to Katie Ledecky. We live in NH. I was wondering if we could mail it to you. If so, could you let me know where to send it? Thanks!
