Libraries Rock at Seekonk Library this Summer
Libraries Rock! this summer’s library theme, will begin with our new Read and Bead program to be held from June 21 – August 11. Kids will earn beads to attach to their “brag tag” as they track reading and attend library programs. Great beads to earn, choose from and trade for. This is a new way to track summer learning/reading that is fun and simple for families. All details may be found on our calendar of events at Seekonkpl.org or register at seekonkpl.org/children.

Additional Programs for Summer 2018 include the Summer Kick-Off event on June 21, Lego Get-Togethers, Kindness Club, Maker Mondays, Harry Potter Birthday Celebration, rainy day events, weekly art projects, Pete the Cat Storytime, Make a Fairy Garden, Instrument Petting Zoo, storytimes for all ages and so much more.

Check seekonkpl.org/children for dates, times, and details of all children’s programs. All programs are free but some may require advance registration. Celebrate summer at Seekonk Library! 508-336-8230 x56140

Summer Reading is supported by Seekonk Public Library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Boston Bruins, with funding from the Institute of Museums and Library Services.


Kindness Rocks Garden at Seekonk Library
A community-wide kindness Rocks Garden opened at Seekonk Library on June 1st.
Rocks have been painted with messages of kindness and have been placed in the garden at the entrance to Seekonk Library. They were painted by children, adults and groups throughout the community to "spread kindness, happiness and show signs of encouragement to others."
Visitors to the garden are encouraged to take a painted rock that inspires them and either keep it for themselves or share it with others by leaving the rock in a public place within the community for someone to discover.
The community is encouraged to continue to add rocks to the garden by painting their own messages of happiness. To participate, stop by Seekonk Library and select a flat white rock (or you may use your own), paint it, and return it to the Library for placement in the garden. This project is part of the international Kindness Rocks Project, kindnessrocksproject.com and is a collaboration between Seekonk Library and Meghan Haskell, Seekonk's local Kindness Rocks Project Coordinator.
"One message, at just the right moment, can change your whole day and outlook on life."
