If you visited the library during the month of November, you may have noticed our display on kindness and compassion.
If research didn’t already show that kindness is in fact contagious, Robbins Library patrons sure would have confirmed it. The display was incredibly popular – we could barely keep it stocked with books! We also got an overwhelming response to the interactive “Leave a kind note, take a kind note” component of the display. What started with a smattering of notes left by staff soon ballooned into a whopping 254 sticky notes wrapping around the corner of the wall. All thanks to library patrons like you. Here’s the sticky note wall in its full glory, just before it came down at the end of the month:
Here are a few closeups, if you’re curious about the content of some of the notes:
Thank you Arlingtonians, for your show of kindness and compassion!
