The Kindness rock project was developed to spread kindness. Rocks may be creatively painted to reflect any subject, used as a learning activity for children, and provide emotional support and community inspiration. International Drop a Rock day is July 3rd when people are encouraged to place a painted rock in a public place. The Friends of the Lanpher Library are planning to creat a BOOK SNAKE, to fit in with the summer reading theme of Tales and Tails. We hope you will join us by painting one or more rocks which will line the sidewalk of the Library for the summer. Be bold, be creative, write or color your rocks! If you need materials, we will provide rocks on a first come first served basis. Additionally we will have 30+ paint-sets of 5-6 colors again, first come first served. Please feel free to use your own rocks and paints too. A few examples are shown below.
