Kindness Changes Everything
2018 Early Elementary Kindness Library Selections
On World Kindness Day, November 13, 2017, Children's Grove delivered the first 17 Kindness Libraries to schools and daycare centers throughout Boone County. Tote bags were filled with five storybooks that were carefully chosen to appropriately present goodwill, gentleness, and compassion. Our hope is that seeds will be planted as the tales are told, which will blossom when children find themselves in intolerant situations. In addition to schools and preschools, 140 Kindness Libraries were given in 2018 to the Moving Ahead Program at Columbia Housing Authority, Boys and Girls Town of Great Circle, and Columbia Parents as Teachers, providing these children access to books at home. Thus far in 2019, 65 Kindness Libraries were delivered to Boone County Schools during Kindness Week. Help spread kindness to our children with a donation of $55 which is enough to pay for one library.
