It's Time for Kind kicked off on Tuesday, November 13! Our virtual kindness wall went live. People began writing on the physical kindness walls at their library locations, sharing stories of being kind by helping others. Walls are available at all library locations.
WBLS radio personality and The Quiet Storm host Lenny Green read the book Mela and the Elephant by Dow Phumiruk to a rapt audience in the Children's Library Discovery Center at Central Library. Hip hop coordinator Ralph McDaniels brought Green to the library.
Students in an ESOL class created cards to be sent to our Mail-a-Book customers. Mail-a-Book is our program for the homebound.
The ESOL students expressed holiday wishes for the Mail-a-Book customers.
Families at Flushing Library also created cards for the homebound.
Stay tuned for more activities and events as It's Time for Kind continues with our canned food drive starting Monday, November 19.
