Summer Kick-Off: Ice Cream & Kindness Rocks

Primary tabs

For Kids, Teens, and Adults. Join us for an afternoon of kindness and ice cream. The Library is encouraging families to spread kindness this summer by decorating a kindness rock. And, while you’re waiting for your rock to dry, you get ice cream! Win-win!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  What is a kindness rock? Kindness rocks are rocks painted with a positive message or image and are then put in a public space either locally or taken on vacation with you. They are placed in plain sight so that they can be spotted easily. The goal is to put a smile on someone else’s face and watch kindness spread. When you find a rock, we would like you to tag it either on Instagram with #nlplrocks or post on Facebook on the New Lenox Public Library page so that we can see where the rocks travel to. Once you find an “nlplrocks” rock, we encourage you to reshare and put it in another space. Keep the kindness going! Ice cream and rocks are available while supplies last. No registration is required.
