One message at just the right moment can change someone's entire day, outlook, or life.

Countway has created a Kindness Rocks Garden in the Countway Community Garden as a way to inspire good will and build community. Visitors can choose to take a rock that speaks to them, leave a rock to inspire others, or simply read and enjoy the kind messages during their visit.

Learn more about the original Kindness Rocks Project on their website.

Rock painting supplies are available the first Wednesday of each month on the first floor of the library (or outside if it's a nice day!) for drop-in rock painting, and the Countway Community Garden is open to visitors daily from dawn until dusk.
