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.

Rock painting supplies are available each Wednesday from 12-2pm in the Countway Makerspace (on the first floor of the library building) for drop-in rock painting, and the Countway Community Garden is open to visitors daily from dawn until dusk.
