Kindness Project

Lexington County Public Library invites the community to join in spreading kindness throughout the month of November.  The library offers a series of activities encouraging local residents to be kind to others, be kind to ourselves, be kind to animals and be kind to the earth.

Amber Conger, the library’s deputy director of operations, said, “We want to show our community that in spite of the stress and uncertainty in our lives right now, we can all be a light for others and be forces for good. The best way to lift our spirits is to do something kind for someone else. We hope that others will join us to focus on growing our minds, our homes and our communities to become kinder and more positive places.”

The library will be offering these in-person kindness-centered activities in November:

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Online at our website, Facebook and YouTube channels, virtual programs will be available throughout the month including:

We hope that you’ll take part in what we’re working on — have a hand in creating a happier and kinder Lexington County.
