"Choose Kind"
Inspired by the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio, stop by the Children's Room at Seekonk Library throughout the month of October and add an act or kindness to our kindness chain, write a postcard to a friend, sign a community-wide pledge to practice kindness, and more. Join us! "When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind."

Learn to Play Quidditch!
Saturday, October 14 at 12 pm
The University of Rhode Island Quidditch Team will be at the Seekonk Meadows to teach Harry Potter fans or other curious folks how to play this magical sport. Watch the team play a demo match, then try your hand as a Keeper, Beater, Chaser or Seeker. Games will run until everyone has had a chance to play. Please bring water to stay hydrated. Weather permitting.
Ages 6 and up (teen and adult too!) Drop in
