“With My Own Two Hands” Kindness Initiative Continues

Killingworth Library patrons are invited to participate in the “With My Own Two Hands” project – identify a kind act that you pledge to do and place the paper entry in our special mailbox; all participants will be entered in our monthly drawing for a prize. Our first winner is a 4-year-old Killingworth resident, who received a gift certificate to Andie’s Cookies! The Kindness Initiative will run through the month of August, so think about how you can make the world a better place. The library thanks the Peach Pit Foundation and the Community Foundation of Middlesex Foundation for sponsoring this activity.
