Painted Rocks because Libraries Rock!
Thursday, July 26, Drop in from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Stop by and paint a rock. Why? For fun! We will have some rocks and art supplies on hand but feel free to bring a small rock of your own. (for adults and teens in grade 6 and up)

Also - have you heard of The Kindness Rocks Project? It’s where you paint a rock and include an inspirational quote – to keep if you need to be inspired, share with a friend who needs some inspiration, or to leave around town for another.   The goal of this project is to cultivate connections within communities and lift others up through simple acts of kindness. Sounds good to us! We will have resources for you to select an inspirational quote and information on how to post your photos at The Kindness Rocks Project if you choose to.
