Anythink Library System Announces Events for Its One Kind Word Project

Anythink libraries in Colorado is launching the One Kind Word Project, a 3-week initiative that “encourages customers to share messages of kindness through personal notes and recordings. This program was originally launched in 2017 and has since grown to include more opportunities to participate. This year, residents can pick up notecards and artistic supplies at their local Anythink to create custom cards that spread cheer to those in need. Cards can be returned to the library, where they will be collected and distributed to organizations across Adams County.”

Another aspect of the project allows people to “call 303-405-3222 to leave or hear uplifting messages from fellow community members. Callers can also sign up to have messages automatically delivered to their phones once a day (text and data rates may apply). Customers can also tune in to 91.9 FM while using Anythink’s curbside services or log on to anythinklibraries.org to hear messages.”

There will be virtual workshops with author Kat Vellos and Colorado poet laureate Bobby LeFebre: “In the three-part series, ‘Cultivating Connection,’ Kat Vellos will share strategies and activities for cultivating fulfilling friendships in adulthood. On Friday, Feb. 26, Bobby LeFebre will present ‘Holding Space,’ a performance and interactive conversation that investigates the nuance and complexities of kindness, social justice, love and collective consciousness. These workshops are free and open to all.”
